Calling all proud parents of fur babies, animal rights champions, and dog people! On Saturday, November 12 at Milk Bar, three Bay Area bands will come together for the second annual For A Good Paws benefit concert will be taking place to raise money for Rocket Dog Rescue.
The benefit, organized under the supervision of the owner of Ruff Paws Dog Walking Mike Johnston, gets behind two different animal adoption agencies, with last year’s focus centered around Family Dog Rescue.
“I changed it this year because I’m a fan of change! I loved working with Family Dog Rescue last year, but I was introduced to Rocket Dog Rescue by one of my clients,” said Johnston. “I’m not sure how will I go about it for the next festival yet; Rocket Dog might become my home.”
Taking the stage will be three bands that call San Francisco home: Farhead, Drew Southern Band, and The Sad Tires. All three bands are relatively new to the scene, but share an enigmatic filling of that perceived rock-and-roll void in the scene today.
Farhead is a three-piece that has a busy week ahead of them bringing “the sound you’ve been waiting for” into your life. Drew Southern has been a force of rock-and-roll brawn in the Bay Area for a while now, touting a self described sound of “California freedom rock,” and with a sound that is quintessential California surf-punk, Sad Tires will be sure to only add to the energy of the evening.
Additionally, Rocket Dog will be having a raffle for a couple of different items ranging from bottles of wine, Coach Designer dog collar, and several other pooch-related prizes. “There’s no goal,” Johnston admits, “but obviously we want to raise as much as possible! Last year we reached $2,000. We would love come near there again, obviously.”
