The Rickshaw gets dramatic on Wednesday with a benefit for Metroactive, the drama program for the students of the Metropolitan Arts and Tech High School in Pacific Heights. Metro High is a public high school that fosters students with classes such as digital design, Flash, Photoshop, web design, fine arts, performing arts and drama.

The night showcases Tricycle Records bands The Union Trade and Aim Low Kid with Audiophase at the Rickshaw Stop.

Both Tricycle bands had an exciting 2007 and both will be a part of the Bay Area Takeover at South By Southwest in Austin in March.
