As seen in this video from Doing It Local, tonight and tomorrow is the BlackRock Rocks fund-raiser for the massacred St. Mary’s trees. Everyone come to the Acoustic Cafe for local bands and to meet your fellow tree-huggers.
Is this too many links to click through? My buddy Keila Torres at the Post explains it all in one neat report:
In response to the destruction of fifteen sycamores last month at St. Mary’s-by-the-Sea in Bridgeport, BlackRock Rocks, organizers of the famed BlackRock Rocks Mardi Gras events, will present a two-day musical fundraiser to support the purchase of replacement trees in the park.
As active participants in the community, the members of BlackRock Rocks decided to take positive action and bring the neighborhood together. On Saturday, May 1 local musicians John Torres and the Watusi Kings will take the stage at the Acoustic Café . Doors will open at 7:30 pm, and the music will go from 8:30 pm until closing.
The following day, Sunday, May 2 will feature the Primate Fiasco, a psychedelic dixieland band from Massachusetts, and other bands. This will also take place at the Acoustic Café, with doors open at 2:30 pm and music starting at 3:30 pm.
The cost is $7 for one event, and $12 to attend both. All money raised will go toward the cost of replacing these wounded trees.
For more information visit www.blackrockrocks.org or visit the group’s event page on Facebook.
BlackRock Rocks is a group of local musicians, artists and avid supporters of both. BlackRock Rocks Mardi Gras, to date, has donated approximately $14,000 for the revitalization of New Orleans.
