#event331 is Downcity Armory’s upcoming mini-tour. 3 shows in 3 states over 1 weekend. It begins on Friday, 2/28 at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, MA. We’re playing with our pals EXH4LER, Emergency Exit, and the Doug MacDonald Band.
Then the action heads down to Brooklyn, NY on Saturday 3/1 at Legion, where we join our friends From Below and Ladyhammer.
We wrap things up in Philadelphia, PA Sunday 3/2 with special guests and good buds in DOCKUMENT and Sys2matik Ovrl0ad, over at the Legendary Dobbs.
But #event331 is more than just a mini-tour. Thanks to Tom of From Below, we’ve partnered with Luke Armstrong of www.lukespartacus.com and www.facebook.com/TravelWriteSing to turn #event331 into a three-day fundraiser for the Integral Heart Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit based in Guatemala, whose mission is to give impoverished children an education. School is a luxury for many of Guatemala’s poor. Children are often forced to work in garbage dumps, rummaging through trash looking for recyclable items for money. And tragically, many of these kids are lured into illegal sex trafficking, forced into prostitution just to survive. An education helps prevent this from happening, and gives them a path to a brighter future.
This makes it all the more important for you to come out and support DCA, and all the great bands we are playing with on this mini-tour, as all the proceeds we earn will be donated to the Integral Heart Foundation. And if you can’t make it to one of the shows, swing on over to our Bandcamp page and download some songs, or order a t-shirt. You can name your price. (Or just message us about how to get it and avoid extra fees.) Our music is also available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and Google Play.
More info for the shows can be found on our Shows page. You can also help by promoting this mini-tour on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #event331, inform all your friends in the Boston, New York, and Philadelphia areas about it, and encourage them to come see us and donate to the cause. It could make a huge difference in the lives of children in desperate need.
Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you on tour.
