Last Saturday, Alley Katz played host to the AIDSWalk Richmond Benefit Show. This high energy show was arranged by Scott Sibley of AIDSWalk Richmond and music promoter Cat Lawler. Six great bands donated their time and musical ability to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS in the Richmond Area.
If you missed this concert then you missed a lot of great music all for $10 bucks. Susan Greenbaum strummed the guitar with a great acoustic set sending off to a fantastic show. She was followed by the bass ripping and powerful electric guitar sounds of Battle Ghost and HalfBrother Sid. By the early evening we all were jumping to the power rifts of Long Arms and Hello Conductor. The all day event was closed out by the headliner group for the Benefit Show, Conshafter. They had the dance floor jam packed till the very end of the night and still had the audience wanting more.
AIDSWalk Richmond will be held rain or shine on Saturday, October 17 and from 8 to 11 a.m. For more information on how to participate or making a donation go to www.aidswalkrichmond.org.
