Rock for Kids Mixtape Auction

Mark your calendars for this Thursday, Sept. 22...Rock For Kids is hosting their 3rd annual Music Mixer, a fundraising auction where you can bid on mixtapes donated by local musicians, venue owners, disc jockeys, concert promoters, music journalists and record label owners. In addition to an exclusive 3-CD set donated by Radio Free Chicago, you can also bid on mixes from Thax Douglas, Bruce Finkelman (Empty Bottle), Greg Kot (Trib), Bob Mehr (Reader), Sean McDonough (Metro), Joe Shanahan (Metro), Miss Mia (Chic-A-Go-Go), Cynthia Plaster Caster and many, many, many more. (there's even a mix from Death Cab's Ben Gibbard!??!) All proceeds will benefit Youth Jam, Rock For Kids' music education program. The auction takes place from 6-10pm at SmartBar, 3730 N. Clark. $5 suggested donation at the door. Click HERE for the complete info and list of participants

Did I mention that Radio Free Chicago submitted a 3-CD mixtape set??? (1 mix made by Nicole, 2 by yours truly) We'd love to see everyone out and have lots of people bid on our set so that it raises some serious dough for the cause....(or at the very least more than 5 bucks!!)
