Some may know that there is the LA Homeless Blog, written by the CEO of People Assisting the Homeless (PATH). Tonight, the Hotel Cafe is hosting a benefit concert for the organization called Rock and Run for Charity. The name is not merely because the Marathon happened this morning. Sara Radle from Calamity Magnet and Chris Radle from Supersport both ran it and then will be playing later tonight. Talk about a lot accomplished in one day.
There's another special event tonight as well and that's the 13th Anniversary of Spaceland! Congrats guys!
