Singer-songwriter Sheila Shahpari
(say that five times fast) wrote in to tell us about a charity event she's helping organize: The St. Louis Showcase
, which takes place next Friday, August 21, at Mad Art Gallery. The event will benefit LifeFeed, Jazz St. Louis, and Play It Forward -- and to help add local flavor, Shahpari says they're looking for local band MP3s for the event. Those interested in participating can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Performers at the event include Shahpari, Thom Donovan and the Northwoods. As an added bonus, A-B is donating beer and
silent auction items include tickets to the Sheldon and St. Louis
symphony members willing to donate lessons. The event runs from 8 p.m. to midnight.
