To All the Bands! Thank you for joining us for Punk Rock Food Drive!
Thanks for joining us for The 9th Annual Thanksgiving Punk Rock Food Drive. We're excited as hell to help out some hungry folks throughout San Diego County and we're glad to have you on board to provide a soundtrack to this great event. Below is a ton of info that can help everyone get the most out of this event.
Lineup and Set Times
Punk Rock Food Drive is Saturday, November 11th at Iron Fist Brewing in Vista.
1305 Hot Spring Way #101 Vista, CA 92081
Each band gets a 40 minute set* with 20 minutes between for gear change-out and raffles.
*1 hour set for O.S.S.
Bands and set times listed below in order of performance:
||2:00 - 2:40|
|Parade of Horribles||3:00 - 3:40|
|Nowhereland||4:00 - 4:40|

|Fallen Monuments||6:00 - 6:40|
|Surface Report||7:00 - 7:40|
|Oceanside Sound System||8:00 - 9:00|
We ask that each band arrive at least an hour before their scheduled set time. Of course, we'd prefer for you to join us from start to finish to share in the entire event but we understand that may not be possible for all.
There is a loading bay that we can use for load-in, set up, and breakdowns. You can drive right up to that bay door for your set to load and unload. Drummers please have all your hardware and kits ready to go prior to that twenty minute change-out that precedes your set time.
We are all Fundraisers
Chris and I typically spend 2-3 months actively organizing for PRFD and we spend the other months figuring out what we can do better. Instead of trying to be an army of two we've started recruiting bands to help out in gathering raffle items. Many of you have connections with various businesses who would be happy to donate to help the food bank.
Food is great but the majority of aid comes from the raffle. One dollar worth of food provides many more meals than one pound's worth. We sell raffle tickets and Punk Rock Food t-shirts and donate that money to the food bank.
We've got a pretty good set of repeat vendors who keep helping out but we're guessing that each of you have some hookups of your own.
We are asking that each band work to secure at least two donations from businesses to be given away in our raffle. You don't have to go crazy here. Typically, we may get a t-shirt, a $20 gift card, small odds and ends that we group together to make different prize packages. If you're stuck and don't know where to begin, let us know and we will help you out with ideas. Pretty much all you need are the two forms below and a smile.
Now repeat after me: ""Hi, I'm organizing a concert to support the North County Food Bank."
You sound like a natural.
Also, you can throw in a couple items of your own merch on top of those other donations if you'd like.
Thank you Thank you Thank you
We take PRFD very seriously. There are many bands we can choose to play this show but we've chosen YOU. We've chosen you not only for your musical talent but because we know that you will embrace this event and produce the best possible outcome for this community
Punk Rock Food Drive is not just a show. This is an opportunity to make a difference.
Thank you for contributing to this event.
