The Boom Booms will be in Port Alberni on Thursday, May 17 at the Rainbow Room to help raise money and awareness for a community garden project.

The Boom Booms have offered to donate $5 from every seat to the cause. Proceeds from refreshments will go towards building a retaining wall and hooking up power and water.

Doors to the Boom Booms concert will open at 7 p.m. and a tour and discussion social will take place before the show. Tickets in advance only at Rainbow Lanes for $15.

The Boom Booms are a six-piece Latin-soul-funk-rock-reggae band. They make music that makes people want to dance — or “get up and love somebody,” as lead singer and guitarist Aaron Nazrul calls it.

Alberni Valley Transition Towns Society is hosting this event. For more info please contact Guy Langlois by phone at 778-421-2026 or e-mail ambiance@shaw.ca.
