The Rock and Roll Report is proud to once again be a part of the second annual Blankfest Quebec in partnership with Montreal’s Old Brewery Mission. With the slogan “It’s about the homeless. Nothing more, nothing less” Blankfest Quebec will run on February 19th, 2010 at Bar St. Laurent 2 located at 5550 St. Laurent corner St. Viateur.
This year we have another great four bands for your rock and roll pleasure. Performing in aid of a great cause will be:
- Special Ops (www.opsmission.com)
- Emery Street (www.myspace.com/EmeryStreet)
- Vinyl Hero (www.myspace.com/vinylheroband)
- The In & Outs (www.myspace.com/theinnouts)
Now the coolest part of this whole thing is that you are not going to just see four great bands but that by paying the entrance fee of one blanket or a warm article of clothing you will be directly help keep the homeless of Montreal warm this winter. Last year Blankfest donated over 500 items of clothing and blankets to the Old Brewery Mission and this year we are looking to up that number significantly so if you want to hear some great live rock and roll and do some good then head out to Bar St. Laurent 2 on February 19th with blanket in hand and help us rock the joint.
Somebody out there who is having a rough time of it would thank you if they could….
