Pat yourself on the back for attending Saturday's early-evening, all-ages extravaganza at Revolution. It's sponsored by Music Saves Lives, a California-based group on its way to nonprofit status that aims to "create opportunities for people to save lives with simple contributions, and to teach the facts about the effects of what they contribute to."
That's a long sentence, but more clearly, the group puts on shows whose proceeds benefit other live-saving charities, with plenty of educational materials inside, so kiddies understand where a chunk of the money from their reasonably priced tickets are going. So far, that's been a number of blood donation and bone-marrow-registry groups. And beyond the music, a number of scene-related companies are sponsoring the event, among them Killbrand clothing and Bad Cat Amps, so expect stickers, display tables, and other goodies that'll make life-saving pretty fun.
Co-headliners Fallen from the Sky are also local, a quintet from Boca who are currently signed to hardcore stable Eulogy. Accordingly, their sound is harder-edged, with gruff vocals, but still an uncanny knack for hooks. Sort of like beauty meets the beast, tracks like "Out of Control" are music to the ears of people who miss thoughtful, hardcore-tinged, skate-friendly punk.
