We've just received word from AEG regarding the lineup for Pure Sunshine. Ten bands are coming together for a pair of back-to-back shows celebrating the life and honoring the memory of Rick Kulwicki, as well as raise funds for the two sons he left behind, Richard and Roman. Contrary to our previous report, the lineup is all local.
In addition to the two shows at the Bluebird, there will also be a Pure Sunshine BBQ at the Larimer Lounge on Sunday, April 24. All proceeds from Pure Sunshine ticket sales (individual tickets are $15 in advance; two-day passes are $30) will be donated to the Richard Kulwicki Memorial Fund at Wells Fargo, which has been set up for the boys. A quarter from every ticket sold for every Bluebird shows in July and August will be donated to the fund. Click through for full lineup.
