ROCK + RESCUE

DONATED TO HAITI RESCUE RELIEF EFFORTS


New York has definitely had their share of disaster, which is why New Yorkers know how to help out when someone is in need.  Ongoing benefits to help Haiti continue to roll out and hopefully everyone is attending as many as they can. Since Brooklyn knows how to throw a party with unbelievable performances, they are kicking it up a notch and jamming out an incredible night of ROCK + RESCUE.

WHAT: To help raise money in Brooklyn-fashion, ROCK + RESCUE is scheduled for February 1, 2010 at 7:30PM at The Woods in Williamsburg. A $10 minimum donation is required for a grand night of jam-packed performances by several bands, including:

Japanther
the Brooklynite punk rock band has recorded with several well known labels, completed nine tours, and has been featured in The New York Times, Vice Mag, New York Magazine, and hailed by Pitchfork as, “one the New York City’s most under rated acts…”

Das Racist
this rap duo has got all of NY talking about “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” and are the stars in the eyes of the Village Voice who said of the song, “either very, very meaningful, or completely meaningless.”

Fresh Kills
The music from this punk rock band is filled with hypnotic rhythms and vulnerable vocals, which caught the attention of Spin magazine, NY Daily News, and MetroMix who raved of the band, “New York’s best borough finally brings the noise.”

Columboid
this indie band describes their music as Ghettotech, Grime, and New Wave, a fusion which impressed Bmoremusic.net who raved that their style, “bridged together quite brilliantly.”

Cerebral Ballzy

This hardcore skate-punk band is comprised on 5 young, passionate, and energetic guys who have been noticed and praised by many, including Time Out NY, NY Press, and Village Voice. Vice Magazine excitedly assures us that they’re, “…one of the best things currently happening in the city, rock and roll, music, and chaotic forces.”

The proceeds will go to the BSVAC (Bedford-Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps), whose mission statement is “saving lives today…building lives for tomorrow”. BSVAC has offered their services to Haiti, and a group of over 100 EMTS and a dozen doctors, all familiar with the Haitian language and culture, arrived there on January 17, 2010. With more volunteers on stand-by, they have the personnel to help, but are in need of donations. You can go to this link to find out more about the charity: http://www.bsvac.org/index.html

Also at ROCK + RESCUE, there will be merchandise available for purchase, where these proceeds will also be donated to further help collect funds. Organizing the event are owners of The Woods and fellow Brooklynites, LauRenn Reed, and Eric Rodgers joining together for the love of Haiti.
