    Hello TB land.
    I organize a charity art show once or twice a year called Mercy, Not Sacrifice. It's a group show of art & music, and any money we make we give it all away to charity. 100%. It's volunteer-driven, DIY, grass roots, lending a hand. No one makes a dime except for the charities. This time around we're giving to Mercyships
    Mercy Ships
    & to Han Schneider Int'l Childrens Foundation
    Han-Schneider International Children's Foundation |
    two very cool charities doing incredible things in the world.

    The show is still being organized, still in formative stages, but I want to throw this out there so people can get their momentum (these things take time). Tentatively scheduled for May 2012, at a gallery in downtown Los Angeles.

    If anyone would like to perform shoot me an mp3 or soundcloud of your stuff. If any artists want to donate a piece, that would be rad. I can't pay, & I'm asking for permanent art donations, but if you perform I can offer a tax certificate letter, for a tax credit. All media, any art form or performance art is acceptable, just know that there are some children present so please be mindful of that re: content. the theme is mercy.

    Of course the artwork doesn't have to be from L.A. It can be sent in.

    Any questions shoot me an email cxkang@yahoo.com.

    -Chuck

    Thanks! Though we dont normally play that song acoustically, it doesnt lose any of its vibe when done electric.
    That song is a pretty good representation of our overall sound.

    It's just that there might be some kids there. A lot of girls too. Amy White of West Indian Girl is scheduled to perform with her band & she'll DJ, maybe my friend Jane who sounds like Brooke Fraser from Hillsong. She's really good.

    Standard protocol for just about any gig, with the exception of backyard parties or little warehouse venues that let you BYOB.
    Am I going to have an opportunity to share a spliff with Maki? I just may...

    :toke:

    Sure, but out back in the parking lot or something discreet and out of the way.

    We need artists to participate too. Any painters, illustrators, sculptors, photographers out there? I can only offer a tax receipt for your donation but that can be just as good you know. Or just do it help, not for the money.
