The World Race Benefit Concert @ The Heartland Cafe

The World Race Benefit Concert @ The Heartland Cafe

Anyone and everyone is invited to Jasmine Jaurigue’s going away benefit concert on Thursday, September 27th, 2018 at Heartland Cafe. Tickets are $10 each and tickets sold will go toward The World Race.

Thank you to Heartland Cafe, who has graciously welcomed their space to host three amazing performers who will give their time to perform for all of you to benefit The World Race fundraiser.

The 3 local Chicago artists:
.
LeSage – Chicago south side native, LeSage, is a musician and poet who uses spoken word as a part of his artistic approach. His music focuses on personal narratives within himself, as well as the collective memories and feelings of the neighborhoods he grew up in. As the political climate shifts, LeSage speaks out about situations that directly affect the people around him, creating environments that bridge the gap between the silent understanding of knowledge and the strength of togetherness. Check out his music here: https://open.spotify.com/artist/6buZgCphWQ5imcxAabmY5P?fo=1
.
Aris P – Chicago Hip Hop artist with just the right amount of soul and vibe to his music. His tracks are smooth, uplifting, lyrical and have enough “feel good energy” to keep you interested. Influences are Childish Gambino, John Mayer, Fall Out Boy and Pharrell Williams. Check out his music here: https://open.spotify.com/artist/2orEcV7pWaO93eQ0p3j4i1?si=T9AMIDNGRkammnQqdsmKag
.
Shytown™ – an American music trio from Chicago composed of guitarist/vocalist Danny Jay, vocalist Eric Johnson, and drummer Dan Reynolds. Their sound can be described as a true hybrid of multiple genres all rolled into one – pop, folk, hip-hop, rock and even country. Taking after Eminem and his famous alter-egos, Shytown is at it’s best making fun, upbeat summertime catchy songs but has a knack for bringing out its dark side. Check out some of their music here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiOHYa_LLrvgD2v1fY_dW8Q

This fundraiser will help Jasmine get to 11 countries in 11 months to reach those stuck in human trafficking, child soldiers, and refugees through The World Race.
Jasmine needs to raise $18,700 to go to go on this World Race but needs at least $10,000 to launch by October 5th. She is halfway there! Will you help her meet her goal while having fun with live music?

To get in, it will be $10 per ticket.
Doors open at 7:30 and first act plays at 8:00pm.

Tickets will go on sale soon! Save the date!
