Pick of the Day: Charity Concerts

There’s two charitable type concerts happening tonight. At the Exchange, several local bands, including Rah Rah, Geronimo and Tinsel Trees are putting on a benefit to raise money for earthquake ravaged Haiti. Meanwhile, at O’Hanlon’s Pub, the Edmonton rock groups The Falklands (pictured) are playing a benefit in support of Solidarity Rock with local groups ASSX3 and The Czar, The Kaiser and The King. I spoke briefly over the phone with Lee Klippenstein of the Falklands and he said that Solidarity Rock was geared to raising money to help indie musicians in Cuba get new gear to replace the decades old stuff they’ve been forced to use.

 Those are two great causes. So if you get a chance, check one (or both) of the concerts out.
