L.A. AREA MUSICIANS RAISING FUNDS AND AWARENESS
ABOUT CANCER WITH TWO UPCOMING BENEFIT EVENTS

 by: Bluzmon

 Those that know me have heard me say this more than once: If I had just two wishes granted to me, they would be: 1) To see the end of fighting between Israelis and Palestinians (because of my Jewish faith and because it’s terrible to see people dying there daily); and 2) To see medicines and cures developed for all forms of Cancer.

Regarding the latter, two high-profile events are about to take place. The first is “Indie Artists Against Cancer,” a “Benefit to help fight the War on Cancer,” as Organizer Misty James calls it. It takes place Sunday, February 23 at The Gig, 7302 Melrose Ave., Hollywood, from 6:30 p.m.-closing. At least a half-dozen area artists will perform and for more information, call James at Gadfly Music: (818) 788-3171.

Next up is “Rock ’n Cure,” billing itself as “the 1st Rockin’ Blues Concert to benefit Breast Cancer and Stem Cell Research.” This high-profile event is being sponsored by one of Southern California’s leading hospitals, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and takes place at the House of Blues, 8430 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, Sunday, March 9 at 7 p.m. Performing that evening: Female blues singer-songwriter-guitarist Peach and Inland Empire faves, The Delgado Brothers featuring supremely-skilled Joey Delgado on guitar. Information for this event can be had by calling (310) 423-3657 or log onto their official website: www.csmc.edu/bloodmarrow.

See you next time... Bluzmon
