Blue Weekend Benefit Show Raises 300 Pounds!

by admin

This past Sunday local band, Blue Weekend played a benefit show for Grind Out Hunger at the Santa Cruz Skate and Surf Shop. The show began at about 7pm and the played a 45 minute set. They played a bunch of original songs as well as covers by bands such as Green Day and Social Distortion. Kids came to listen, skate LOT F, hang out…people were playing ping-pong, pool, foosball and just relaxing on a Sunday evening all in support of Grind Out Hunger and the youth of Santa Cruz County. With the combo of cash and canned food donations the total came out to just over 300 pounds of food!
After the show the band approached us and asked when they could do this again…another show featuring Blue Weekend is in the works. Stay tuned…

Big thanks to the Skate Shop and their staff for hosting the event, thanks to the band for ROCKING, and to everyone that came to support.

Next up, at the Santa Cruz Skate and Surf Shop, we have SPINFARM and Aptos Jr. High’s WHIPLASH playing on Saturday, March 10th.
Look out for details about that show coming very soon.

Thank you to everyone that came to the show on Sunday to support Blue Weekend and Grind Out Hunger. We had a blast and cant wait to do it again!
