Will Rock for Food

My semi-annual benefit show is bigger than ever! I’ve put together an unbeatable night of music for a good cause… Some of Austin’s best artists are donating their time and talent for those in need. Make plans to come out for the whole evening, and spread the word!

AUSTIN, Texas - There’s never enough help you can provide to the Capital Area Food Bank. With that in mind, local musicians Drew Smith, Gordy Quist (of the Band of Heathens), Plumtucker (the David Lutes Project), Betty Soo, and Milkdrive (featuring members of the South Austin Jug Band) are taking to the Momo’s stage on Sunday, December 21st for the Will Rock for Food benefit, designed to help raise canned goods for the CAFB right before the holidays. The show will accept either donations of non-expired canned goods or a recommended $10 per person in cash or check as admission to the event. All proceeds will go to the Capital Area Food Bank to assist raising donations and awareness for the local non-profit.

Established in 1981, the Capital Area Food Bank donated 15 million pounds of food to local citizens in 2007. The holidays are of particular importance to the charity as it collects enough Christmas meals to feed families across the city. More than half of the year’s food donations come in during November and December, totaling over 635,000 pounds of food. Will Rock For Food begins at 6 p.m. with a performance from BettySoo, followed by Milkdrive at 7:15 p.m., Plumtucker (the David Lutes Project) at 8:30 p.m., Gordy Quist at 9:45 p.m. and Drew Smith at 11 p.m.
