CONCERT CONFIDENTIAL: 3 Cities. 3 Causes. 1 Night.

September 13. 2011 | By Trina N. Green

Or if you really dig alliteration: simultaneous sensory stimulation!

But on the serious, something fantastic is about to go down courtesy of Eventbrite; the online ticketing platform that enables people all over the world to plan and promote events, making it easy for folks to connect through the live experience. We here at The Owl Mag like the sound of that. Partnering with specific local charities for each event, Eventbrite will host three FREE intimate concerts in three cities happening at the same time. The date? September 17th, 2011, so mark your calendars accordingly. And Eventbrite For Causes has helped non-profits raise over $56 million. Are you amazed yet? Of course you are, but keep reading!

The cities/artists/venues/causes:

New York City: The Hold Steady at a secret location to be announced soon benefiting VH1 Save the Music. To RSVP go to this page.

Los Angeles: Wavves at a secret location to be announced soon benefiting The Fender Music Foundation To RSVP go to this page.

San Francisco: Jackie Greene at a secret location to be announced soon benefiting Friends of the Golden Gate To RSVP go to this page.

Well played, Eventbrite and, yes, these are some quality artists! Now each of these causes is particularly germane to the cities that each concert will be held in, making it not just a musical event, but also a community one. Yes, these musical play dates are FREE, but all will have the option to give at the shows via Eventbrite At The Door, a very cool iPad application that can actually take cash and credit card donations. Tickets for these events will become available on Thursday, September 15th, so stay tuned for bits of information as they surface!
