BRING Recycling offers musical fundraiser
BRING Recycling is proving once again there are countless ways to reduce waste.
"RePlay: A Carnival of Recycled Music," set for Saturday at Cozmic Pizza, is the organization's latest effort to raise money for its new headquarters: the Planet Improvement Center.
The event will feature music played on instruments made from recycled junk and familiar music played on regular instruments but `recycled' in surprising styles.
If you want, you can bring your own inventions and to join in the fun.
Highlights include local fundraising bluesman Jerry Zybach on a cigar box guitar, the Conjugal Visitors playing `Appalachian twang' with washtub bass and washboard, and the Tin Can Band.
The carnival runs from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. for a suggested minimum donation of $10.
