For Pete’s Sake

What’s that you say? There’s the chance to rock out to seven bands, bid on some cool art, and help out a cancer patient? That’s right. In honor of artist Peter Giovenco, who is currently battling a brain tumor, a cornucopia of local bands and artists are putting on a fundraising art auction/benefit concert called “For the Love of Pete.”

Local legends the Livid Kittens and the temporarily reunited Trapped by Mormons headline a show that also features Timb, Dooms De Pop, and more, as well as a special performance by the Fetish Factory Dancers. Plus, you’ll be able to bid on artwork by the likes of Giovenco, Francesco LoCastro, and Sas Christian.

You know you don’t have anything more important to do, so for the love of Pete, come out to Revolution (200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) on Saturday. Doors open at 4 p.m. Admission costs $10. Call 954-727-0950 , or visit www.petergiovenco.com.
Sat., April 15
