Hey, the Okobos Music Festival is going this Saturday, October 11 (yeah, I didn’t know about it either) at the Resch Center in Green Bay, WI. For the most part, the lineup actually looks pretty solid though with Death Cab For Cutie, Ben Folds, Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals, M. Ward, Ingrid Michaelson, and Jewel all sharing the same bill. Tickets are still available for purchase here, but I’ve also got a pair to giveaway to one lucky cheesehead out there (or someone who just wants to travel from NY to WI for the weekend to see a show). Just email firstname.lastname@example.org by end of day Tuesday, October 7 and tell me the full first name of singer/songwriter M. Ward (please remember to include your mailing address in your email). A winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday, October 8.
Here’s a little more information about the Okobos Music Festival:
Merging music and fashion to fight international poverty, the Okobos Music Festival is a charity event to kick off the launch of a new socially-responsible global brand Okobos Footwear, headquartered in Green Bay. 100% of the proceeds from this event and donations pledged during the Festival will go to the Okobos Foundation to benefit two of its primary charitable organizations – Friends of Nutre Hogar, a Panama service project educating our youth about impoverished nations and the Musical Arts Academy of Nairobi, Kenya, The Maank Project.
