TWO hip-hop benefits shows in Seattle for Hurricane Katrina victims

Seattle hip-hop has stood up!
"SAVING SOULS"

Benefit Show to Raise Funds for the Victims of Hurricane Katrina

SEATTLE - On Sunday September 11, 2005, there will be a benefit performance for the victims of Hurricane Katrina at The Upscale Restaurant (3901 4th NE; Renton, WA. 21+ Dress Code Enforced). Show starts at 6pm.

This event will be hosted by television personality Vivian Phillips, KCTS and Isaiah Anderson, Jr. Teen Development Leader at Langston Hughes Cultural Arts Center with interpretations by powerful poet Iese.

This benefit is to help the United West Coast Relief Group take "bare essentials" to the communities severely hit by this natural catastrophe. We as a collective of local artist, would like to use our craft to make a strong statement of support for the people of the Southern Region of America, to which most of us are tied to. The evening will be conscience and powerful.

The show will include performance pieces by the Silent Lambs Project, Felicia Loud and The Soul, Laura "Piece" Kelly, GoodyBagg, Choklate, Grooveology, dRED.i, Rajini & Mama Gerry, Dionna Long, Pirate Radio, Melissa Greene, Krista Bell, David Long, Denise Cooper, and dj's Roc Phella, and Sean Malik, with Special Appearance by NBA Basketball Players Jamal Crawford, Brandon Roy, and Tre' Simmons.

Doors open at 5 PM and is free to the public; however we are requesting a suggested donation of $10.00 in order to support this very important cause.
