"St. Baldrick's Day"

Benefit for cancer research features local bands and comedy

Saturday, March 21, the Earth House will open up its doors to those looking for a fun night and a cure for cancer.

St. Baldrick’s Foundation is holding a benefit concert at the Earth House in support of cancer research with the help of the Jaycees, the Earth House Collective and a few bands. Locals Borrow Tomorrow and Hot Jimmy and the Charred Remain, as well as the Chicago-based group Algren will perform. Admission to the event is free, although donations are accepted and encouraged.

“We hope this will raise a lot of money this year with our goal of at least $5,000 — likely to be exceeded — for childhood cancer research," said event organizer and Jaycees VP of Membership Ryan Hayes. "[We'll] hopefully draw in new members to the organization as well."

Hayes says that holding the event at the Earth House, a collective devoted to social justice, arts and comnunity-building housed in the Lockerbie Central United Methodist Church, was a perfect choice.

“I love the hippie atmosphere and promotion of peace and international justice," said Hayes. "I walked in there and instantly knew it was the right space.”

Hard rock band Borrow Tomorrow is one of the featured bands donating its time to the event.

“We're not going to razzle-dazzle you with gimmicks or raza-matazz on stage but we are going to draw you in with our earnest energy and, on a good night, bring everyone together in an emotional communion,” said lead guitarist Robert Newport. "That means drinking yourself silly and having your face melted with some tasty guitar licks or feeling a little melancholy when Chris (lead singer) gets soulful on the keys.”

In addition to the live music performances, those in attendance will be entertained by ComedySportz, who will also emcee to help keep the show rolling smoothly.

“Our hopes for the event are to get as many people as possible at Earth House, to not only raise some money towards a cure for childhood cancer, but to keep this battle on peoples' minds in a personal way,” remarked Newport.

"Borrow Tomorrow Vogue Review"

Borrow Tomorrow with Augustana Show Review

Here in the circle city of Indianapolis there are few places to catch a live performance. You have a hodge-podge collection of bars and pubs that showcase singer songwriters and a few epic venues that only allow the likes of Kenny Chesney and Billy Joel on their stage. So when a band like Augustana comes around they are lucky to find a place to play.

Augustana is what some might call a one hit wonder with their single Boston. They are a piano heavy alternative roots rock meets pop sound that screams of personal grief and pain in nearly every lyric. Having made many member changes in their few short years of existence they have managed to build a cult following that travels all over the country to hear them live.

Augustana has played the city of Indianapolis before hitting the stage at Birdy’s Bar and Grill on the outskirts of town. But this go round they found themselves on stage at one of the most highly sought after venues for nearly every local band in the city. The Vogue has played host for many years and has given a home to the likes of modern day rock bands such as Papa Roach and She Wants Revenge to the classics such as Willie Nelson and George Thorogood.

So when Augustana found themselves on this stage they had to take their time and put effort in choosing not only an opener that matched their sound but also one that matched their level of talent. After many attempts to find the perfect match they had to look no further than the guys in Borrow Tomorrow.

When BoTo took the stage the crowd went crazy. People clapped, cheered, and started shouting, “BoTo, BoTo, BoTo!” You could see the excitement on faces in nearly every corner of the bar. By the time they were finished with their first song if you didn’t love them before, you did now. If you didn’t know who Borrow Tomorrow was, you do now.

People were tapping their feet, singing along to the words of the all original set, and getting into the music as if they had the album on repeat on their way to the show. If you didn’t know any better you might think these guys have been doing this for their entire life. Sure, they have played a handful of shows to no one but friends and family but those days are long gone.

In music, and as an opener, you are always trying to out play the band that comes on after you in an effort to steal their fans, so to speak. Only given thirty minutes to be able to do this, Borrow Tomorrow blew Augustana out of the water. Not saying that the Augustana set was not good, but BoTo rocked harder than any opener I have seen in the last ten or twelve months.

If you do not have their EP go get it now. They are in the studio working on their debut album but have given you an appetizer to get you ready for what’s next. And if their show at the Vogue was an inclination of what is coming you better get ready. From a small town band to iTunes chart toppers you are about to see BoTo take over the market. If you are not loving Borrow Tomorrow now, you will.

We’ve got our influences (see: Guster, Wilco, Petty, et al) and our inspiration (see: life, you). Little of this matters, however, when the four of us are on stage with the lights turned low, the people in the crowd anxiously awaiting four clicks, and we’re off and running. Indianapolis is home, which for now, doubles as a starting block for these Midwestern boys as they seek to discover just what, in fact, home really is. We’re true to ourselves, to the words we write, and to the sounds we make and pour our hearts out in an effort to illustrate this to listeners. Check out our songs. Share them with your friends.
