October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and many local Orlando musicians are doing their part to raise awareness and funds with events scheduled throughout the month in Orlando. On Thursday, October 3, several Orlando bands are getting together for a Rock Pink benefit show at The Social in downtown Orlando.
Music fans can enjoy live performances from Orlando bands Bob Green and The Whiskey Conspiracy, Dirty Shannon, The Heartbreak Junkies, Ashley Dudukovich of Chasing Jonah, Sam Stone of Exit the Ride, Carly Jo Jackson and Melodic Dissent while supporting a good cause. Orlando singer/songwriter Bob Green has done several Rock Pink benefit shows and organizing this one has special meaning for him, “I wanted to do breast cancer this show, it’s that month and a family member just had a double mastectomy.”
The Social is located at 54 N. Orange Ave. in downtown Orlando. The doors will open at 8 p.m. for this 18+ show. Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door. The musicians are playing for free and all ticket sales above venue costs are being donated to Rock Pink.
