Mark your calendars! Folk group Po' Girl will be returning to do their second benefit concert for Bike Works! Last year's benefit concert was huge success: the band played to an enthusiastic sold-out crowd, folks loved the musical experience to which they were treated, the musicians loved the audience and the reception they received, all while we raised funds to support Bike Works’ programs! The event is all ages – bring the kids!
Bike Works will be hosting an after-the-show Open House with drinks and snacks (complimentary with concert tickets!!), at our program location just up the block from the concert venue, where guests will have a chance to meet the performers: 3709 S. Ferdinand St., Seattle, WA 98118
Friday - November 13, 2009
Columbia City Theater
Doors open 6:30 PM - Music begins 7:30 PM
Concert followed by Open House at Bike Works
Tickets Available on Brown Paper Tickets for $30.00
ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO SUPPORT the Bike Works programs…
Bike Works invests in youth, promotes bicycling as a clean and healthy transportation alternative and form of life-long exercise, and provides affordable bicycle services to the Seattle community (www.bikeworks.org). Bike Works views every bicycle donated, refurbished, and recycled back into the community through its programs as one less bike in the landfill, and potentially one less car on the road.
Po' Girl's music has soulful roots combined with jazz, country, and R&B grooves (www.pogirl.net). This is framed by their performance on a stunning array of instruments, including the banjo, guitar, clarinet, piano, accordion, gutbucket bass, harmonica, drums, and if that isn't enough…the dobra and penny-whistle!!! Represented by the same agency that includes Ani DiFranco and other well-established, seasoned musicians on its roster, Po' Girl regularly plays to sell-out crowds at top venues and festivals across the U.S. and abroad during their almost constant touring.
Because of an agreement between Po' Girl's booking agent and local venues, the benefit concert can't be promoted publicly over radio or by newspaper. Please pass this email onto your friends or otherwise let others know about the concert!
Hope to see you there!
