A Drink For the Kids Starts Tonight

posted by on October 8 at 15:50 PM

What better time to donate money to the Vera Project than now, when all you have to do to be a good samaritan is drink some booze.

Starting tonight, show up at any of the bars listed below between 6-10 pm on the specified day, and order a Redhook or Dewars to do your good deed for the week. All proceeds will go straight to the Vera Project.

Here’s the schedule:

Wednesday October 8 Saint Hazlewood Shorty’s Easy Street West Seattle – with a 7p.m. show with Abigail Washburn & The Sparrow Quartet (featuring Bela Fleck)

Thursday October 9
Cha Cha
Hattie’s Hat
Mission
Rendezvous

Friday October 10
Linda’s Tavern
King’s Hardware
Spitfire
West 5

Saturday October 11
Neumos Presents A Drink for the Kids 2008 - Grand Finale Concert
Very special super secret surprise guest headliner!
The Ruby Suns (Sub Pop) from New Zealand
Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band
Hosted by People’s Republic of Komedy’s Kevin Hyder
DJ Righteous Trash

As for that super secret surprise guest headliner… I don’t wanna ruin any surprises, but here’s a hint: despite the band’s misleading name, they’re really just rockers from Canada. Not cops from Japan.

Update: Neumo’s just got the go ahead to announce the headliner—it is, if you hadn’t already guessed, Tokyo Police Club! (Who are also opening for Weezer earlier that evening, which is why they had to keep it a secret.)
