Rebels with a Cause
We love performing for people, but we know that money is tight, and that Punk music isn't everyone's cup of tea.
That being said, we are not your typical punks. We are rebels with a cause. Poverty and equality are very important issues to us, so we've decided that the cost of admission to all of our shows will simply be non-perishable food items which we will donate to food banks in each and every community that we perform in. We want to change music; we want to change the world, and use our gifts to create gifts for those in need. Feeding people through our shows.
Since we will not be generating any income in the usual way through ticket sales, the money raised through your generous donations will be used exclusively for expenses related to travel and lodging, allowing us to get to these communities and promote the cause. After each show we will calculate the amount of food we raise, deliver it to the local food banks, and through traditional and social media, we will challenge the next city or town to do better. Our goal is to cross the country doing this, and help feed thousands of people, while offering an awesome evening of super fun fast paced high energy music!
We truly hope you will support us in this philanthropic punk endeavour; this first step towards what WE hope will become a long lasting music movement. Punk music is about revolting against society and challenging the status quo. This is how we choose to revolt against the poverty in society. This is The SkudFux' Revolution.
