Save the Brains is an annual rock n' roll fundraiser for brain cancer research. I'm currently working on organising the second event, which will take place on Thursday, April 1st (the next day is Good Friday) at the Biltmore Cabaret here in Vancouver. There will be performances by The SOME x6 Band, The Deadcats and The Stag Reels. It's emcee'd by burlesque beauty Burgundy Brixx and the ever-debonair Purrrfessor of Kitty Nights West. There will also be a fantastic raffle (details TBA), a silent auction featuring artwork by some fabulous local artists, and of course, door prizes and goodie bags at the event.
All of this is in memory of my friend Kevin, who passed away one year ago tomorrow from brain cancer. The people who knew and loved him will be raising a glass to him this weekend, as he would've wanted. *Kevin, here's to you!*
If you're interested in attending, donating to or helping out with Save the Brains, you can find all the information you need and my contact info at www.savethebrains.com. Hope to see you there!
