LA-based indie label, Common Ground Records, is proud to partner with Tackle Kids Cancer this September to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!
Pediatric cancer is the number one cause of death by disease in children in the United States. Tackle Kids Cancer along with the Children's Cancer Institute at HackensackUMC consists of dedicated clinicians and researchers specializing in pediatric cancer and fight to make the necessary strides towards outstanding medical success by advancing research and providing children access to the highest level of care.
To aid in the fight, Common Ground Records will be hosting two music festivals featuring over 20 bands in benefit of TKC, Common Ground Fest West in Los Angeles on September 10th will feature Assuming We Survive (acoustic), Alive & Well, In Her Own Words, and more, hosted at 8139 Apperson St, Sunland, CA. Common Ground Fest East will be held in Baltimore on September 23rd will feature Something More, Centerfolds, Life on The Sideline, and more at Raven Inn (8636 Loch Raven Blvd. Towson, MD).
Every dollar raised for Tackle Kids Cancer benefits the essential clinical care and critical pediatric cancer research needed to find a cure!
Common Grounds Records had this to say about the partnership, "We feel like now more than ever there has been a lot of negativity and problematic issues surrounding our community, and we wanted to prove that there are still good people and good things that can come out of it. So we asked all our friends and family in music to come together for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It didn't matter what genre they were or how established they are. Good Vibes Only and the bicoastal Common Ground festivals are purely about good music for a good cause. No contribution is too small and we hope you will be a part of it with us."
In addition, Common Ground Records will also be releasing a digital compilation, called Good Vibes Only Vol. 1 featuring 50+ bands including State Champs, Forever Came Calling, Handguns, Hit The Lights, Marianas Trench and even The Hook's good pals, Halogens! The compilation will be available via Bandcamp on September 9th with all proceeds from the festivals and compilation being donated to Tackle Kids Cancer. Pre-orders for the compilation are currently available here!
