Saw this announcement at the Bucky convention (more about that one later), and thought it may be interesting for the BLOG worldwide. Not so much for jumping on an airplane to hit Hollywood & Vine but as info of what's going on in the world.
Maybe Kim African Drumbeat can add some info as well.
NextAid's MISSION is to coordinate music events to benefit children affected by AIDS in Africa.
This event is NOT sponsored by Budget Car Rental, good grief, read Flemming's account of their chilling practices in Europe.
Anyway, "Dream 2" will feature Soulstice, Medusa, Garth, and a lot of interesting artists. Plus an auction...
(2 roundtrips to London), etc...
John Quigley will give an inspirational speech. That's the guy who saved a 400 year old oak tree by just simply living in there for a while (see CNN's article)
All this will be at Avalon, at 1735 Vine Street, Hollywood, CA 90028, just North of Hollywood Blvd. This theater is better known as the former Palace, again, November 8th.
All this for a very good purpose, namely to help children in Africa. Would be cool if more such events would be happening.
