826LA presents CHICKENS IN LOVE, an online pledge-a-thon fundraiser, full-length album, and one-day music festival.
For those of you who don’t know, 826LA is a non-profit that started in San Francisco at 826 Valencia. There are 8 chapters around the country in SF, LA, NYC, chicago, etc. The goal of 826 is to help kids with writing and tutoring. They hold workshops and after school programs to help kids with their writing skills. You may have seen the echo park time travel mart.
This coming Saturday (3/6/2010) they are holding an event to support “chickens in love” which is a full length album of songs written by 826LA students and performed by LA artists including Cold War Kids, She & Him, Submarines, Fiona Apple, etc.
They are accepting pledges here. You can see all the songs here performed and vote. some of these kids are just so cute.
The mini music fest is kind of the culmination event for this. tickets are $15 and can be purchased here:
