Earth, Wind & Fire, & Chicago, & Bread for the City

This Wednesday is Summer 2009's can't-miss double-trouble all-star super-duper rock-and-roll mega-event comes to Merriweather Post Pavilion: Earth, Wind and Fire and Chicago, together again!

Furthermore, we are thrilled to announce that - as part of the World Hunger Year rock star alliance - the two classic bands are boogeying down in support of Bread for the City!

We'll be the designated recipients of all DC donations raised as part of their limited edition "three songs for three dollars or three cans of food" offer. Donate three bucks or three canned goods, download three newly-recorded EW+F-+/or-C songs from the internet. What a deal.

Many thanks to World Hunger Year for setting up this great opportunity, even though an onstage shoutout from Bruce Springsteen would have been kinda cool. Next year, maybe?

In the meantime, Bread for the City staff will be tabling at the show. If you're going to the jam, stop by to drop off a donation, or just to say "hello!" (Is it us you're looking for?)*

*Um, wait - is that a Lionel Ritchie reference? It's hard for your Beyond Bread editor to keep these things straight.
