A really important benefit show @ Growler

This Sunday is going to be something a little different and certainly special.  The show will be a benefit for a Colombian organization dedicated to nutrition and education, Viracocha.

My friend Devin set this show up because he volunteered here recently.  Here’s what he wants to tell you about it:

Hey this is Devin and we're having a benefit show on Sunday
March 4th for an awesome project down in Colombia called Viracocha.  Viracocha is a farm/ school/ home for a lot of people down in a Colombian mountain town called San Agustin.  Viracocha has a large and ever expanding amount of land dedicated to
agriculture, a number of class rooms and recreation areas for the kids, and a couple of kitchens for feedings, and is in constant need of outside funding to help keep the project running.  The farm uses the food to sell to support itself, and for feeding those involved with the project and all people in the community who need help obtaining food themselves.  The farm also gives work to all parents in the communities who can't find work elsewhere.  and the school is for kids who can't go to local schools, or whose parents want them attending the school with a focus on
organic agriculture, and biodynamics.  I ended up on the
 farm and living in the farm house last year for a while and had an awesome time, everyone involved were incredible people and i saw the farm functioning and helping the community and everyone who came through it.  SO! the exchange rate of the U.S.
dollar and the Colombian peso makes the dollar go really far, so any money that we can raise for Viracocha helps them out in huge ways so we're throwing a benefit show to try to raise some U.S. dollars that'll go five times as far on the farm and
school down there, the show will be in Growler on Sunday, March fourth with:
 Doersovit- long running Denver ladies punk band with a couple of new guitarists.
 Ghosts of Glaciers- epic heavy pretty instrumental post-metal from Englewood.  And
Remedios- Denver raging hard core/ screamo/ math punk rock.  Check out the
Viracocha website (http://www.fundacionviracocha.org/), and we'll see you at 6 PM
on the fourth!

About Growler Distro

Growler Distro, or Growler Record Store, are the same thing: a project aimed at selling records, tapes, CDs, CDRs, zines, books, and cool handmade trinkets in Denver, CO, which I'm proud to say is my home. My name is Molly and I've been tabling at punk shows since 2006 and now I'm expanding to a brick and mortar shop at 742 Santa Fe Drive. (Days and hours TBA) I've always loved underground music for it's freshness and honesty and I want you to feel like you can discover a gem as well. I believe that music brings people together much like a well-prepared meal can. And, I think that underground music and literature often talk about the things in life most important to you, whether that be disenchantment with the state of things or a truly broken heart. I carry a lot of different styles of music, so don't limit yourself to one definition of what underground or punk might mean to you. Growler Record Store has music for quiet, contemplative rainy days, dance parties, and even for the apocalypse. I have music made by women, queers, people of color, and in many different languages. You will find your voice as expressed by talented musicians, just the way it was meant to be. And you will likely leave feeling inspired by and connected to your fellow humans.
