Shred for a Cause

Rock and roll really can save the world. That's the idea behind Fünde Razor, a 21-and-over charity event. Show up tonight at 6 p.m at the Walnut Room, 3131 Walnut Street, pay a $10 cover (plus donations, if you like), drink beer, buy $10 raffle tickets for kick-ass prizes and play copious amounts of big-screen Rock Band, the video game in which you'll shred guitar to "Enter Sandman," pound out drum solos to "Tom Sawyer" and wail the lyrics to "Won't Get Fooled Again." All proceeds go to Child's Play Charity, which buys toys and video games for kids in hospitals.

Sounds wicked — in a good way. For more information, go to
Wed., Dec. 12, 6-10 p.m., 2007
