RAIN announces AIDS WALK Charlotte kick-off

by Joyce Brooks

RAIN’s AIDS WALK Kick-Off features performance by Volatile Baby.
CHARLOTTE — It’s AIDS WALK time again. Neighborhood Theatre sponsors the AIDS WALK Charlotte Kick-Off on March 24 — an energizing evening of the best local music and getting pumped up for AIDS WALK Charlotte 2007.

The event will feature outstanding musical acts such as Babyshaker and Volatile Baby.
Babyshaker — Influenced by art, politics, fashion and a love of all music, Babyshaker careens through the rock underground — embraced by it’s sub-genres but limited to none. Too punk to be metal, too metal to be punk. And, despite a penchant for style, too raw to be called glam.
Volatile Baby — Their mission is simple: to grow where they are planted, to lift the spirits of the places where they land … to bring their light into dim places … through their harmonies, through their lyrics, through their passion … to raise the vibrations of the room.

The Kick-Off will also feature well-known DJs Andy Kastanas and Edward Jones.
AIDS WALK Charlotte is now the largest HIV/AIDS awareness event in the Carolinas. Lending Tree, Creative Loafing and Power 98 WPEG-FM will present the 11th Annual AIDS WALK Charlotte on May 5, 2007, to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS on behalf of Regional AIDS Interfaith Network (RAIN). The public is invited to join AIDS WALK Charlotte 2007 at Gateway Village in uptown Charlotte by registering at www.aidswalkcharlotte.org.

Celebrating its 15th anniversary year, RAIN engages the community to transform lives and promote respect and dignity for all people touched by the AIDS crisis through compassionate care, education and leadership development.
