The lineup for Rock for Blood 2011 (The Haven, March 5) was finalized a week or so ago, and this year’s charity/festival will feature SNAFU, The Getbye, Ideal Zero, More than Planes, and 22Blaac. What’s Rock for Blood? Here are the details from the site:
Rock for Blood 2011 is an event being presented by the rock group Anyone’s Guess and Florida’s Blood Centers. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness with the public on the need for blood in Central Florida and to achieve a pre-set unit goal for blood donation on-site, during the event.
The Florida Blood Centers’ “Big Red Bus” will be present, screening donors and taking blood donations. The partnership will set a goal of “Number of Lives Saved” during the event by calculating the number of potential lives saved using the blood donated that day. 5 local bands will participate in this Music-Infused blood drive by promoting and urging their fans to donate blood. The band with the highest number of donations in their name will win the title “Orlando’s Bloodiest Band” and will be awarded a Grand-prize pack, donated by the event sponsors.
In other words, it’s a good cause. If the bands don’t appeal to you, you can always just head over to the site and sign up to pledge a donation.
