MC Risi and I were stoked to fill in for Sam on Rocket Shop to promote the Essex CHIPS Worlds End FUNdriaser happening Friday, January 6th from 7-10pm at the Essex Teen Center, 2 Lincoln St., Essex Jct. The event will pair youth musicians with adult musicians and will raise money for CHIPS. Phil Yates and Patrick Fitzsimmons will be performing with openers and high schooler Garrett Brown and Luke Young. More info at

We also promoted our free online music magazine,, with news, reviews, and interviews about independent and unsigned artists. We’ve been around two years and have helped promote local and touring music. We also talked about our springtime fundraiser happening in the spring to raise money for the Solar Sister Project.

The Worlds End FUNdraiser is the jump off of monthly open mics, the first Friday of every month, 7-10pm, held at the Essex Teen Center. Thanks to Big Heavy World for letting us host and thanks to all you listeners.
