500 Songs For Kids (songsforkidsfoundation.org) has become more than just an annual event; it’s officially an Atlanta institution. The 10-night fundraiser brings together an enormous music community to raise funds for various children’s hospitals, treatment centers, special needs camps and all places where kids are in need.
Hundreds of local, regional and national touring musicians are scheduled to perform at Smith’s Olde Bar, each performing one song from the 500 Greatest Era-Defining Songs of All Time, a special list crafted for this amazing organization.
Our friends at Mixtape Atlanta have been posting daily updates with this year’s performer announcements, as well as highlights from last year. Some great bands have been confirmed including Ponderosa, Dead Confederate, The Coathangers, Young Orchids, The Yacht Rock Revue, Modern Skirts and many, many more. Past years have included special performances by Cee-Lo, Butch Walker, Gavin DeGraw, Arrested Development, Angie Aparo, Pete Yorn, Mute Math, and Cracker.
