Our friends at The Roxy Theatre, The Comedy Store and Viper Room have partnered with other national and local music venues to host concerts benefitting the Gulf Coast relief efforts. The goal of the July 1 concerts is to raise $500,000 through ticket sales and online donations to benefit nonprofit org Gulf Restoration Network, which provides assistance to the people, wildlife and wetlands affected by the oil spill. The org also provides advocacy work throughout the Gulf region.

 

“We know through music and the generosity of people that we can help make a difference in the Gulf Coast,” said Roxy Theatre owner Nic Adler. “We hope this inspires others to make a donation, attend an event and get involved.”
