Rockin' for a Cure - Curing MS One Song at a Time at Rock & Roll After School

Rockin' for a Cure is an all ages event featuring three of Philly's most promising up and coming bands, HONOR, Phantasm and Rivers Monroe. Net proceeds raised at the event will be donated directly to the National MS Society, Greater Delaware Valley Chapter.

Rockin' for a cure will be held on December 4, 2010 at Rock and Roll After School, a unique venue located at 400 Franklin Avenue in Phoenixville, PA.

Rockin' for a Cure will feature live music, free food, raffles, door prizes and more! This is an event you will not want to miss!

We hope to raise at least $10,000 for the cause - curing Multiple Sclerosis - and will raise that and more with your help!

About the Bands
HONOR, Phantasm and Rivers Monroe are not going to be "local" for long - soon, they will be "big time" and heard on every radio station in America - seize this opportunity to hear them in an intimate setting, which is a memory you will cherish for a lifetime.

Honor is a hard rock 4 piece from the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. Taking pride in their ear-catching vocal melodies, heavy guitars and relentless backline, Honor is a band you won't forget once heard.

Phantasm creates loud rock mayhem and tight rhythms with cleverly executed outbursts of controlled chaos. This turn-on-a-dime style of rock also contains traces of math and jazz. The sound is paired with powerful yet delicate vocals and dark sarcastic lyrics. The three members are making the music they want to hear, unafraid to go with or against the grain depending on the moment.

Rivers Monroe is a high energy, pop-rock quintet that has recently completed their second full-length album “Meteors” after the successful and well-received release of their 'Electric Life' in 2009. With each member bringing their own distinct set of influences to the table, Rivers Monroe has become something different that can best be described by the music they create. Rivers Monroe ambitiously looks forward to touring and reaching as many ears as possible and creating a new and exciting niche in the world of music.

Ticket and Donation Information
Tickets are available at www.AkashaEvents.org for a $25 Donation. Act fast and take advantage of multi-ticket discounts.

While visiting the website, be sure to check out the "Listen Now" section to hear full length songs from all three bands - we're confident that you will quickly become addicted to their heavy riffs and melodic tunes - just as we are!

Intended audience:
Rockin' for a Cure is an all ages event and is open to all who wish to attend. The intended audience is anyone who loves music and wants to use that love to help a good cause.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
