A Call For Bands! For the 3rd 'Silicon Valley Rocks' Charity Show

"Silicon Valley Rocks!" is always a fun charity event, held at the iconic Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, in early December.

It features many Silicon Valley geek bands and raises money to fund local school music and arts programs.

Alison Murdock and her team always put on a great show. Here is the latest news:

Our call for bands is now OPEN. If you work in the tech community and you have a regular gigging band, please apply to play. Read the FAQs for more information. We have only 6 spots available. Apply here.

Tech professionals by day, rockers by night -- on December 1, 2010 at the Great American Music Hall, they will pick up their instruments, venture onto the big stage, and let their alter egos shine... for a good cause and the love of music. Silicon Valley Rocks 2010 (year 3!) will bring together the Valley's tech community -- from VCs and entrepreneurs to bloggers and software developers -- to raise money for Music in Schools Today (MuST). Last year, we raised over $30,000. This year, our goal is to raise over $50,000.

Registration is now open. Earlybird tickets are on sale for $35 for regular tickets or $50 for VIP tickets (includes free drinks, food, and entry to the upstairs lounge). Tickets can be purchased here.

If you are interested in sponsorship or partnering to promote SVRocks, please contact me.

Rock on!
