Clicky Clicky Music Blog Presents A Benefit Show For Community Servings Featuring Guillermo Sexo, Johnny Foreigner, Speedy Ortiz & Infinity Girl | 7 Nov. | Great Scott
[Flyer: Lewes Herriot] After months of planning, we are thrilled to announce (or more specifically announce) that Clicky Clicky Music Blog is presenting a bill for the ages, four of the best bands *anywhere*, performing together for one night only Wednesday, November 7, to raise money for one of the worthiest charities in all of the Commonwealth [Facebook event page]. The evening will be headlined by veteran Boston dream pop heroes Guillermo Sexo, who are joined by Clicky Clicky favorites all Johnny Foreigner -- yes, you read that correctly, the legendary Birmingham, England-based noise pop quartet will be there -- as well as Western, Mass. indie giants Speedy Ortiz and local shoegaze superlatives Infinity Girl. The lineup is amazing, and the bands will perform to help Clicky Clicky raise funds for Community Servings [Link]. The Jamaica Plain-based organization prepares and delivers daily free, nutritious meals to almost 800 chronically ill clients (as well as their caregivers and children) in 17 cities and towns in Massachusetts. If you'll permit us to copy and paste from Servings.org, Community Servings' web site, "meals are prepared with delicious, fresh foods and are packed with the nutrition needed to fight illnesses such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and lupus. To meet our clients' needs, we cater to their dietary restrictions, providing for 25 special diets."
We're announcing the event and lineup extra early because our goal is simple: we want tickets to this event to sell out, as soon as possible, so that we can accomplish three things. First, we want to raise a substantial chunk of change for Community Servings to help support them in their mission of feeding those in need. At the same time, we want to convey a strong message that Boston's indie rock community cares enough to step up and help make a difference in people's lives. And our third and final goal is that we can have a night so big, so successful, that the first two questions everyone asks the next morning are "when can we do it again?" and "what else can we do to help people in our community?"
So click this link and buy your tickets. We can promise a show so amazing that people will talk about it for a long time to come. All the bands are playing for free, so all proceeds after the club covers its costs go straight to helping pay for nutritious meals for our chronically ill neighbors and their caregivers and kids. We're also planning raffles or other ways for you to agreeably part with a little more hard-earned money the night of the event. We'll have more details on that as the date of the show approaches. For now, though, here's what you need to do:
1. BUY TICKETS. LOTS OF TICKETS.
2. RSVP AT FACEBOOK AND INVITE YOUR FRIENDS TO THE SHOW
3. ATTEND, GET BLOWN AWAY.
That Lineup Again:
