Sound Through Sight Benefit Show Tomorrow Night!

Our friends at Sound Through Sight are putting on one hell-of-a-show tomorrow, Friday night at Newsonic Loft in Brooklyn, NY. The concert will be a benefit to get their new book up and running. Titled Sound Through Sight: A Gonzo Road Trip To Understand Music In 2010, the project run by writer Tom Williams, photographer Sarah Mulligan and filmaker Rahawa Haile will document the group on a four week long roadtrip across North America and Mexico next month talking to bands large and small, venue owners, record store clerks, label managers, and music fans of all types to gain their insight on the state of music. This is certainly going to be an amazing project to see come to fruitation.

This is where you the fans come in. Help out Sound Through Sight by donating HERE or checking out the even tomorrow night. Details are below!
