Sadly, I know too many people with spinal cord injuries and the subject has always been close to me personally. This came from the Jason Mraz fan club (though I've edited it slightly to remove 86 exclamation points):
We are excited to announce Cord Progression, a special night of music in support of Jesse Billauer’s motivational speaking tour, Life Rolls On and Spinal Cord Injury Awareness.
This exciting evening will take place at the Long Beach Terrace Theatre on Saturday, February 27th, 2010 and features a special acoustic performance by Jason Mraz. Good friends Timmy Curran (with full band), The Makepeace Brothers, and Bushwalla will also perform with more performers to be announced.
Pre-sale begins Wed. Jan 20th at AM PST via Ticketmaster and ends Friday, January 22nd, 2010 at 10pm PST. The password is "LIFE." Regular tickets go on sale this Saturday, January 23rd, 2010 at 10am via ticketmaster.
This event is paperless (and anti-scalping). Ticket holders will go directly to the door at the venue, present a valid photo ID, and swipe the credit card used to purchase tickets for entry. It's fast, easy and good for the environment. The entire party must enter the venue at the same time since tickets are non-transferable.
