The Rescues To The Rescue
Coming off their recent sold-out residency at the Hotel Cafe and a packed debut last week at LA's famed Troubadour, The Rescues will launch their first-ever East Coast tour August 19 in Boston, MA with recording artist AM (on Filter Records) supporting.
The two-week trek will hit New York City's Canal Room on Friday, August 21. Before heading east, the group will return to the Troubadour on August 12 for a special cause. A longtime friend of the band, Kelly Buchanan--a New York-based singer/songwriter--suffered a traumatic brain injury during a street hockey game in March 2008. The Rescues will join Glen Phillips (ex-Toad the Wet Sprocket), Sara Bareilles, Maria Taylor, Paris Carney and more to be announced for a benefit concert to raise funds for Kelly's health care.
Three of the four members of The Rescues attended Berklee College of Music alongside Kelly Buchanan. "We've known Kelly for a long time, and we're thrilled for this opportunity to bring the L.A. music community together to celebrate the music of one of our own," notes singer/guitarist Kyler England.
