Local bands My Own Chaos, Grace Under Pressure, The Electric Demons and Shadows have teamed up to present a food drive concert event in honour of this International Women’s Day.
The all-ages event, called Evamping Rock: Sisters and Misters Rock Night, will take place at Olympia Pizza on March 10 and will feature performances from all four bands – all of which have at least one female member.
Non-perishable food items will be accepted at the door in exchange for a discounted ticket, with donations going to the Surrey Food Bank.
The Surrey Food Bank, a highly used resource in the community, receives no core government funding, and depends on community events and fundraising, as the need for services is growing at a rapid pace.
Evamping Rock: Sisters and Misters Rock Night will be held at Olympia Pizza Restaurant, 10257 King George Blvd. It is an all-ages event, though there is a bar for people with ID.
Admission is $10, or $8 with non-perishable food items. The show starts at 8 p.m.
