ROCK for JWOC: A Concert to Benefit Laos

For those Noo Yawkers about to rock, come out to the Highline Ballroom tomorrow night (Sunday, May 4) for ROCK for JWOC.

Journeys Within Our Community (JWOC), a Cambodia-based non-profit organization that builds wells for villages without fresh water, offers micro-financing to support business growth and gives scholarships to children seeking higher education. My friend Kristina and her roommate Nicole are heading Laos in two weeks where they will spend the next year working with a new JWOC branch in order to bring the same programs to impoverished villages there. The money raised at ROCK for JWOC will help fund new Laos projects.

Artists such as Julius C, Shilpa Ray (of Beat the Devil) and Her Happy Hookers, Linfinity, and DJ Domer will be on hand to deliver quality tunage while Rogue Elephant, an improv comedy outfit from the Upright Citizens Brigade, will ready barrel of laughs.

So stop what you're doin' to come out to a great gig for a great cause! Advance tickets may be purchased via the Highline Ballroom site for $10 or spot your $15 at the door the day of the show. All contributions are tax-deductible (including tickets) AND 100% of ticket sales and raffle donations will go directly to JWOC.

The Highline Ballroom is located at 431 West 16th St. between 9th and 10th Aves. Doors at 7:00 p.m., first band at 8:00 p.m.
