The art show and silent auction begin at 8 p.m.; music begins at 9 p.m. Portions of proceeds from the art show will also benefit Project Help, Camp Function Junction and Project Tiny Tim.
The bands performing at “Rock for a Cause” are: The Auto Defiance, Oh No No, Kat Smo, Heavy Sole, and Queens Boulevard.
“Last summer, I became moved & inspired by three courageous boys of my close friends Amanda Allen and James D. Allen,” Songwriter and member of The Auto Defiance Bradley Boyer said. “These kids don't have an easy life like most. I decided to take a stand for a noble cause. Since then, our band called on dozens of talented artists and bands to help bring our community together to make a difference in the lives of children who need it most. Proceeds go to Project Help and Vanderbilt Pediatric Rehabilitation. Thanks friends, bands, doctors, staff and students involved and supporting our Art-Rock Show at The Exit/In Friday. This is for you, Phillip."
The Exit/In is located at 2208 Elliston Place in Nashville.
Tickets to “Rock for a Cause” are $7 at the door, or can be purchased at www.exitin.com. “Rock for a Cause” is a show for ages 18 and up only.
