Rock Raizer and event founder, Julie Taylor are hosting the first of two annual fashion shows. This event will benefit some children participating in Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Austin and local foster children on Saturday April 17th at Encore Club ~ 611 Red River in downtown Austin. The fashion show will feature the designs of some of Central Texas' hottest new fashion designers, including 2009 Texas Next Top Designer, Megan Summerville .
In keeping with Austin music tradition there will also be an afternoon concert line-up of six kids bands. The fashion show will follow with swag bags for all paid guests. The show will conclude with a concert by Eleven-Fingered Charlie (EFC) and Sun Salutations. Here's EFC's Reverbnation bio:
"Eleven Fingered Charlie is an inventive genre-crossing rock/reggae project based out of Austin, TX. Since 2001, the band's status has been expanding with each passing year through word-of-mouth grass roots efforts. EFC's devotion to their musical career has opened the door to opportunities such as the Barack Obama Political Rally as well as many shows with major artists like The English Beat, Pepper, OAR, The Expendables, etc. Dedication and creativity remain paramount as EFC continues to push forward, writing new music, building new friends/fans and sharing their interpretation of what the future of rock and reggae music can sound like."
