Love your city? Love the music in your city? Want to see a boatload of great musicians for a great cause that helps your great city? Well, excellent, then you should head to Johnny D’s tomorrow night (5/14) and check out: Rising “Songs of Hope & Recovery”. Each performer will play for 10 minutes, in a rapid fire fashion so that you get as much Boston music as you can (for the short price of $15) in a couple hour run time. There is a pretty good variety of acts throughout the night, from americana, to straight country, folky, to a bit more rock n’ roll. Regardless, it’s going to be one hell of a show. Theres even supposed to be some silent auctions, CD compilations, and other cool stuff. You can buy tickets at the door or in advance at http://www.johnnyds.com/ . I even hear some folks will be performing songs they wrote soon after the marathon tragedies in response to the events.
A list of the folks playing include:
Tsunami of Sound
Butterworth & Co.
Adela & Jude
Tad Overbaugh & The Late Arrivals
Renee & Joe (from Bandit Kings)
