A thunderous rock anthem like "Dancing With Her Friends" was just born to fill up a big room, and tonight SIDEWALK DRIVER gets that chance as the colorful Boston glam n' glitter crew open for the B-52's at the House of Blues. It'll be the first of two times a rising Boston act graduates to play the big stage, as next Friday Mean Creek joins the WFNX Miracle on Lansdowne Street party. Very cool to see our bands getting a chance to strut their shit in front of thousands.
What's also very cool is that tonight's show is a benefit for the Epilespsy Therapy Project, which, according to Sidewalk Driver vocalist and man-about-platforms Tad McKitterick, "was founded by a small group of parents of children with epilepsy, physicians, and researchers whose passion and impatience with the status quo brings a unique, strategic approach to accelerating new therapies for those living with epilepsy." For real.
General tickets to the show are $50, but organizers hooked up all Sidewalk Driver fans with a special $15 discount. To receive the discount, go to the event's Live Nation page and under "Search for Tickets", select the "Sidewalk Driver" ticket option. In the password box next to it, type in: sidewalkdriver
"We are very excited to be involved with such a great charity and to be sharing a bill with such an iconic act like the B-52s," added McKitterick.
Certainly a reason to go out dancing with your friends, good cause and all.Sidewalk Driver takes the stage promptly at 7pm, so don't be late.
