05/03/11 Climate Leadership Gala - Washington, DC
« on: May 02, 2011, 04:29:54 am »
Just had this pop up on Google :

The three-time Grammy-Award nominee singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton, will release her fourth album, Rabbits On The Run (Razor & Tie) on June 21st. Carlton, who long ago adopted a green lifestyle and is active in the environmental cause, will entertain the Gala guests. Her green initiatives include joining an expedition to Greenland with over 40 international artists, journalists and scientists to inspire action on climate change, and seeking to make New York City streets more bike-friendly.

"Performing at the Climate Leadership Gala is one way I can contribute to driving action on climate change issues, which is a passion of mine," said Vanessa Carlton.

The gala will be at Washington, DC's EPA Atrium, Ronald Reagan Building.


the article is confusing, will Vanessa be performing just May 3rd, or May 3rd and 4th?
.....or just May 4th? ..... o_O

It's a fundraiser.  My band played one for a different cause last fall where the tables went up to $20,000, and donations went up to half a million(!). A Hollywood A-lister was the host.  These aren't meant for the general public, nor is the music the central selling point.  Lots of people with more money than God.

And no, I am not one of them!
