We’re counting down the hours to the big Southeast by Old North North Benefit Concert featuring 4 separate musical acts THIS SATURDAY, Sept. 27 at Plush, 3224 Locust. If you haven’t reserved your tickets yet - don’t worry! - you still can get tickets online by clicking HERE to buy your tickets via TicketFly for just $15… or, you’ll still be able to purchase your tickets at the door Saturday night, for just $15.
Whether you’re a resident of Old North, a friend of the community, an advocate of historic preservation, a promoter of healthy communities, a fan of one of the bands, or just someone who wants to spend the evening listening to great music at a cool venue with a crowd of friendly, community-minded characters, the Southeast by Old North Benefit Concert for Old North St. Louis Restoration Group will be the place to be on Saturday evening. The doors open at 7 p.m.
Earlier this week we provided a bit of background on one of the bands, Five Eight (click HERE to see that), and we’ll provide more detail about all of the bands and musicians below. BUT, please note that this event is more than a rocking night of good music. Since the whole event was pulled together by ONSLRG Board member Doug Rasmussen to be a fundraiser for ONSLRG, the ticket revenue will support ONSLRG’s neighborhood-wide revitalization work - AND there will be other ways of providing support that night. One of the highlights will be a raffle for many fantastic prizes, including a gift basket (shown below) from Bissinger’s, which recently moved into space on North Broadway.
Other raffle prizes include a variety of items from Crown Candy Kitchen, CDs and other products from Euclid Records and tickets to a concert at the Pageant, tickets to the St. Louis Rams’ Oct. 13th Monday Night Football game, a growler and gift certificate from Morgan Street Brewery, a night’s stay at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel, a gift certificate for the Fountain on Locust… and more.
If the music and the company of friends and other cool people isn’t enough reason to attend, come on out to support ONSLRG’s work AND get a chance to get some great stuff.
PLUS, hanging out with some great people is a good way to spend a Saturday night!
But, if you like music, that should be a compelling enough reason to attend. To get a feel for the sounds of these musicians, click on the links below to listen to a selection from each.
Corvus & Canis…
and, Five Eight…
Saturday night you’ll have a rare opportunity to see and hear all of them live on stage at Plush! With that much talent all performing on the same stage in the same night, the $15 ticket price is one of the best entertainment deals in town. You might as well get several tickets and treat all of your friends to a great night out for a great cause! Click HERE to buy the tickets online - or come on out Saturday night and pay at the door.
And, as noted in the previous posts, if you just can’t make it to the concert Saturday but you still want to support Old North St. Louis Restoration Group, just click on the image below to make a secure, tax-deductible contribution right now. Thank you!
