SPREAD JOY & ROCK OUT// Wall-A-Thon Family Benefit This Saturday

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, there are still many local families struggling this winter season. On Saturday, December 17th, 4 sonically gifted NYC bands will come together for one incredible night of rock to benefit The Wall Family Flood Relief Fund. After being forced from their home and losing all of their most treasured possessions & family photos, let's come together to help The Walls make new holiday memories and get the fresh start they so richly deserve. In the meantime, want to support a great cause and look good doing it? Its easy with the Wall-A-Thon benefit tees, donated by indie streetwear brand Brooklyn Royalty. The print was designed & screened locally by Shane Taylor of Blackbird NYC in Brooklyn.

100% of the proceeds go directly into a Paypal account for the Wall Family to use as they need it, when they need it. All of the printing, blank tees & tanks, shipping and ink are donated, so literally every cent of these shirts will help get the Walls back on their feet.

At the Wall-A-Thon Benefit Concert, we will selling these shirts onsite for $25 suggested donation. We'll even be able to accept credit card donations of any amount onsite to go straight into the Walls' bank account. Please buy a shirt (or two!) and help these Hurricane Irene survivors build a better future, today.

Brooklyn Royalty in Metromix

"Fashion label Brooklyn Royalty is doing something new this season: a bar! The new bar boutique Brooklyn Kingdom will function as a retail home for their label’s latest styles, as well as a watering hole for those who like to mix shopping with spirits. Drinks run the gamut, from premium draughts to champagne and house cocktails, like The Brooklyn, a well-blended mix of Makers, vermouth, maraschino and Amer Picon. And a reasonably priced 4-8 happy hour will keep more than a few window shoppers browsing with $5 cocktails, $4 drafts and $5 Tecate and shot specials."
