Rock 4 Roots Recyclable Bottles Cans Will Pay Students Way Into Drexel Sierra Club Concert

April 21, 2008

What: Drexel students will pack the Philadelphia Armory to watch a five-act concert. Rather than show the green, students will each drop off a minimum of two aluminum, glass or plastic containers at the door to gain admission.

The Drexel Sierra Club’s Rock 4 Roots show will cap the Drexel Green Initiative’s Earth Week 2008 activities, which include lectures and film screenings. Students who donate enough containers to fill a 5 gallon bucket will get raffle tickets for prizes.

The five acts scheduled to perform — Breaking the Silence, Drop Collective, Leiana, Matt Duke and Papa Midnight — are based in Greater Philadelphia.

Visuals: • Students placing bottles, cans and jars into bins to “pay” admission to the show • Large bins holding thousands of recyclable containers • Rock acts in performance

When: Saturday, April 26, from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The show will begin at 7 p.m.

Where: Philadelphia Armory, 33rd Street north of Market Street
