Walk like an Egyptian Music Festival this weekend

Our pals at Zambaleta music school are throwing a kick-ass benefit show this weekend, featuring about 20 bands including Foxtails Brigade, Quinn DeVeaux, the Blank Tapes, and Kacey Johansing. Have you heard Kacey’s album? It’s pretty damn incredible.  Also playing is Glittersnatch, a supertrio featuring the best folk-singin’ babes in town: Megan Keely, Wolf Larsen, and Kelly McFarling. Listen as they harmonize prettily on their cover of Kids by MGMT:

The show is at the Restoration Workshop on 19th and Treat, which is actually a working restoration workshop that doubles as a great place for shows.

If you can’t afford the $5-$20 sliding scale cover, you can also volunteer at the show and score some free class credit at Zambaleta while you’re at it. Read on for the details.

Every 2 hours of volunteering = 1 hour music class + 1 pound of good music karma.

And we have plenty of shifts so you can volunteer your heart out. If you are interested, shoot us an email at volunteer@zambaleta.org with 2 or 3 areas of your choice:
