ULTRAVIOLET BRINGS LOCAL BANDS AND ARTISTS TOGETHER TO FIGHT RARE GENETIC DISEASE
Concert, Compilation CD and Art Show to Raise Money for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
DALLAS TX – APRIL 17, 2008 – Local bands and artists are using their talents to take a stand against the rare disease, Cystic Fibrosis.
On the evening of Saturday, April 26, eight bands will take the stage at Club Dada in Dallas for The UltraViolet Rock Show benefit concert and art auction.
The date will also mark the release of UltraViolet, a CD compilation featuring 21 tracks from Sebadoh, Deep Blue Something, Tim DeLaughter (The Polyphonic Spree), Baboon, all artists performing and more. Many of the tracks are previously unreleased or brand new for the compilation. Thanks to the donation of manufacturing from Crystal Clear and Sam Paulos, all proceeds from the sale of the CD will go direct to the CF Foundation.
Suggested cover is $5 and the line-up includes El Gato, Lovie, Wonderfool, Bridges and Blinking Lights, Sunward, The Felons, Blue Petal, disconnected in '73.
The cause is personal for Kirk Dixon (El Gato) and Rebecca Dixon (Lovie). Their youngest daughter, Violet, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was a toddler. "The research being done by The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is helping improve the lives and the outlook for CF patients like Violet," says Rebecca Dixon. "The CF Foundation has already made such an impact in the quality of Violet's life, we wanted to gather our friends from the local music and art communities to support The Foundation's work."
Along with the live music, The UltraViolet Rock Show will feature an auction of paintings and photography from over 40 local artists including Ange Fitzgerald, Erica Fellicella, Frank Campagna and Fred Holston.
And what's a good party without take home goodies? You can commemorate the evening in Hal Samples' Cash-And-Carry Photo Booth.
The show will be the first time that the UltraViolet CD will be available for purchase. A complete track listing for the CD can be viewed at http://www.myspace.com/ultravi
In 2007, the inaugural UltraViolet event raised $10,000 for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Please join us as we come together for a good time in the name of supporting a worthy cause.
