Today is A Good Day For A Show

>> Today is quite a busy day here on Long Island. There are 5 killer shows going on at all different times. I suggest you do your best to get to at least one before the day is done.

>> Rock Out Autism, a nationally recognized non-profit foundation, is hosting their third annual benefit concert today at the Nutty Irishman in Farmingdale. The foundation focuses on raising funds to promote awareness, acceptance, and support of individuals with Autism through mentoring and new program development.
>Doors for the show opened at 1pm, but the first band, The Cowboy Presidents, starts at 2. Other bands performing at Rock Out Autism 3 include One Love, Con The Villain, Paging Grace, and more. Go enjoy some good music and support a great cause!

>> In the mood to support another good cause? Starting at 6pm, A Fight For Hope Benefit Show will take place at Ethical Humanist Society in Garden City. This show is being held on behalf of one of the founder's two cousins who are fighting an extremely rare disease called Cockayne Syndrome. "With this disease, every year that they get older, their insides age 10 years. They suffer from tremors, cataracts, have trouble speaking and walking at times and other issues that they should not have to be facing."
> This show will feature performances from my friend Christopher John as well as Under Spinning Lights, Almost A Memory, Dress2Impress, and more. Doors open at 6:15, and the first band begins at 6:25pm.

>> For those of you who like indie/rock music, and are over the age of 16, Atlantic/Pacific is playing at the Vibe Lounge tonight with Hotel of the Laughing Tree, Tiger Riot, and more. Doors open at 6 pm. Don't forget to bring ID!

>> The Break Contest has been going on since 11:30am this morning, but there's still time to head over to the Crazy Donkey and support your favorite local bands! The winning band of this contest will go on to perform at The Bamboozle Festival in East Rutherford, NJ.

>> Last but not least, Ballyhoo will be performing at Ollie's Point in Amityville tonight at 8pm. Other acts include Hazmat Bay, All Out Riot, and Outshine. This is a show for people over the age of 16, so make sure to bring your ID.
