KPFT’s radioActive backyard benefit this Saturday

January 13th, 2006 · 2 Comments

This Saturday (1.14.06), KPFT’s radioACTIVE program, which airs Fridays from 1-2 p.m., will host a benefit concert at the KPFT “Backyard Stage” (419 Lovett Boulevard, one block south of Westheimer/3 blocks east of Montrose).

The benefit concert features The Dimes, Suzanna Choffel, and Astra Heights, and helps support the second annual KPFT summer “Youth in Radio” program.

From the press release:

THE DIMES are an up-and-coming local band with a growing fanbase; check out their music at:
www.myspace.com/dimes. (Note: Seriously, they’re great. Go check them out — it’s during the day. You really have no excuse.)

SUZZANNA CHOFFEL is an amazing “urban folkstress” from Austin. In 2003, she won an international songwriting contest and when we had this unknown young woman in the KPFT studios in November, the phone rang off the wall with people wanting to know who she was and where they could see her. You can get a taste of Suzanna’s music at: www.suzannachoffel.com.

ASTRA HEIGHTS are a talented young rock band and they recently scored a recording deal with a major record label, Universal. This will be their last gig in Houston before they head to the east coast to record their debut album. Check ASTRA HEIGHTS out at: www.astra-heights.com.

A donation of $10 per guest is requested. All proceeds will benefit KPFT Summer Youth Program. For more info call 713.526.4000 or contact the program via email.

Hope to see you there.
