METRO ANNOUNCES 2010 HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS CONCERT SERIES & FOOD DRIVE
Calling all college students, former Chicagoans, and visitors! Metro welcomes you back to Chicago with Metro’s Home For the Holidays Concert Series. Featuring eight special concerts showcasing some the city’s most promising bands and DJs, plus some of Chicago’s favorite touring acts, there’s no better way to celebrate the holidays than with some great music. Low ticket prices make the series a great gift or holiday outing with family and friends, and there will also be a food drive, giving patrons an opportunity to give back to those in need this holiday season. Meet up with old friends, expose your relatives to new music, or just come check out what’s new in the Chicago music scene, at Metro’s Home For The Holidays Concert Series from December 17 – 30th. Tickets to all Home For The Holidays shows are now on sale and available in the Metro Store and online at www.metrochicago.com.
The Chicago Independent Radio Project will also host a food drive at the shows to benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Patrons are asked to bring a can of food to the Metro Store drop off table, graciously staffed by volunteers from the Chicago Independent Radio Project. Most needed items include peanut butter, canned meat and fish, canned vegetables, canned fruit and beans. Anyway can bring in food drive donations anytime beginning Friday December 17 through Thursday December 30 to the Metro Store. You do not need to be attending a show to bring by a donation, so come by and help Metro and CHIRP stock the shelves of the Greater Chicago Food Depository this holiday season!
Come join Metro and some of Chicago’s best and brightest bands for the 2010 Home For The Holidays Concert Series!
