Activism - Punk 4 the Homeless
"Punk 4 the Homeless started in Jan 2010 aiming to present quality punk rock, raise money for homeless charities and introduce youngsters to the scene. Much like Gillman Street it is all ages, unlike Gillman Street it is in a Church. It is hoped it will be a respectful family friendly environment (where Charlie Harper could bring his grandkids).Traditionally punk and church haven't got on. Yet both are minorities who believe in openess, cooperation, equality, are anti racist sexist etc and care about all sentinent beings.
Possibilities are endless, especially with Alternative Tenticles signing Knights of the New Crusade and Lars Fredrickson calling Johnny Cash the first punk.The promoter for these events has been part of the punk scene for over 30 years (old git)... Proceeds from each gig goes to Casa Alianza/street children."
