WE SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST
Our final show results in our biggest fundraising effort to date.
First and foremost, THANKS to everyone who supported this event the past 5 years. What was originally intended to be a one-time shindig evolved into an annual industry concert featuring some great live music from some extremely talented folks, all from our little vocational corner. Each year we tried to shake things up a bit, from jamming on the streets of downtown and at some of St. Louis’ best concert venues, to introducing a rotating charitable recipient.
When: Thursday, September 14
6 – 10 pm
Where: The Bootleg Stage @ Atomic Cowboy
4140 Manchester Ave., 63110
Why: Because it’s fun as hell, and we wanted to do something especially nice for one of our favorite clients.
The final Antidote Agency Jam exceeded all expectations by raising nearly $5,000 for St. Louis Bicycle Works through generous band donations and ticket sales. The money raised this past year will allow 60 inner-city kids to participate in their Earn-A-Bike (add link http://www.bworks.org/bikeworks/earn-a-bike/) program, which promotes bicycle safety and maintenance. Not bad for a little underground garage rock music fest!
So all in all, it was a successful final event, but every great show deserves an encore, right?
