Music on Melrose every Sunday at the Gig

From an email:

A free showcase, every Sunday night at The Gig (7302 Melrose Ave 90046), from August 20th -November 12th. Featuring an eclectic lineup of performers over a thirteen week period, The Platform is FREE to those 21+. 100% Voluntary donations will be collected at the door for AIDS Project Los Angeles (www.apla.org) and Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (http://www.asianmarrow.org/)

Check out http://www.theplatform2006.com/ or www.myspace.com/everysunday for more details.

I don't usually cover this kind of stuff, because it's not really "free," it's a no-cover benefit. I think it would be bad form to show up and to not donate and buy drinks. You could sign up for the bone marrow donation program though. Last year at the Tofu Festival, the only open table I could find was at the bone marrow donation booth. The next thing I knew, they were taking a blood sample, and now maybe I get to save someone's life.
