RockHouse Arts Foundation and Jim Donovan to Hold Benefit Concert
for Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf.

Pittsburgh's most well known drummer and founding member of RUSTED ROOT, Jim Donovan, will assemble an international cast of percussionists and drummers to perform a benefit for ROCKHOUSE ARTS FOUNDATION on May 3, 2008 at Molly Brannigan's Irish Pub in Mt. Lebanon, starting at 8pm.

Opening the show will be the duo of Bill Burke, performing on the 8-string WARR guitar, and Dan Ostrowski on drums.

The May 3rd Pittsburgh event at Molly Brannigan's marks the second visit to the Steel City for RockHouse.

The beneficiary selected for the show is the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. Funds from the event will be used to provide a variety of drums and percussion instruments for use by the students at the School for music therapy.

There are additional RockHouse events planned for Pittsburgh in 2008. Interested organizations should contact Dan Ostrowski at the national office in Baltimore, MD. Phone (443) 255-8577, or email dan@rockhouseworld.org.

Wired to Win
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
03 May 2008
Wired to Win, an extraordinary new film in IMAX®, showcases the amazing ability of the human brain to overcome adversity, accomplish the near-impossible, and power each of us to victory and success in life.

The brain’s abilities are illustrated through cyclists racing in the Tour De France. Over the course of the event, they are caught up in hair-raising crashes, dramatic battles over the Alps and Pyrenees and action-packed descents down steep mountain roads. Their ultimate goal? The finish line on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

The film raises the questions "how do they do this?" and "why do they do this?" Ultimately the answers lie within the mind and the human brain itself.


$8 adults; $6 children 3-12 and seniors 62+

$7/$5 for members
