The Arc Agency, Fair Weather Records, WRTC, and City Ablaze present:
The Kids Are Alright: A benefit for the Bastos Family and The Tommy Fund
This show was originally meant to serve as sort of a release show for a compilation album that Fair Weather Records recently released called The Kids Are Alright. The plan was to get at least a couple of bands off the comp to do a show and donate all the proceeds to The Tommy Fund, which is the charity that this compilation is based around. We were well into planning this out when something came up.
My friend Kayla announced that her 16 year old brother had just been diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia and that she would be planning a benefit show to help her family cover the medical costs because they were already in a tight spot to begin with. I wanted to help somehow and thought it made sense to combine efforts since both causes are very closely related, so we did just that.
