Hard Rock Café Throws a Rockin' Benefit




A group of cool local bands and artists have teamed up to participate in a fundraiser happening at the Hard Rock Café on Sunday.

Artists like indie-rockers Ghost Town Trio, former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley, industrial rockers This I a Shakedown, Miami University-educated singer-guitarist Dave Ritz and alternative heroes Pale Hollow (pictured) will play outside the Hard Rock Café as part of an all-day street festival that starts at 11 a.m.

Many of the bands are affiliated with the locally based Reversed Image Unlimited label.

Tickets are $10 and proceeds go directly to the Cleveland Police Athletic League, a 70-year-old program that provides recreational, athletic and educational activities for young people. PAL is the only program in the country that provides daily interaction with police officers in the community and last year Cleveland PAL police officers interacted with over 10,000 inner-city Cleveland area youth, many from minority and low income families. —Jeff Niesel
