Tom Schraeder and Do312 Present: Ultra Violet Petting Zoo THIS Sun. 7.1

Tom Schraeder put his money where his mouth is in organizing the music for The Ultra Violet Petting Zoo, a fundraising festival for the Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club of Chicago. Now here is a cause we can all agree on. So keep the cause mindful when you pass through the doors (suggested donation is $5 and they are taking stuffed animal donations to hang). This is a family friendly event that has a petting zoo, rides and a boatload of great bands. Tom will be debuting his electronic project, ALLOUT SHELTER. Also notable is the sub-two-minute-song punk stylings of Vortis kicking off the music lineup at 2:15. I have seen them before and I highly recommend you catch their set. I have also seen Brighton MA, Sleepy Kitty (St. Louis), and White Mystery and all played really good sets. The fest will be held at 2501 W Irving, just west of Western.

From the official festival release, "A one-day music festival featuring some of Chicago's finest bands giving back to the city we love. 'The Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club Carnival' celebrates its 65th year as the cities largest and longest running carnival. With 28 carnival rides, 12 bands and a petting zoo - the Ultra Violet Petting Zoo was created to transcend genre and to make a difference in our future. Last year 'Chicago Mixtape' and I helped raise enough money to keep 1500 kids off the streets. This year, Do312 will be curating the event with me and we're expecting, with your help, to break last years record. Our city's youth programs are being phased out and together we can all make a difference!"
