5 So-Cal bands join forces to raise awareness of distracted driving at K-JAM concert series at Mission Viejo, CA’s Kaleidoscope Center
Mission Viejo, Ca. February 23, 2013. Five of Orange County's most rocking, crowd-pleasing bands are stepping up to perform at the second Text Kills K-Jam Concert: Wild Hearts. The show is in suite 329 on the top floor at Kaleidoscope, off Crown Valley Parkway in Mission Viejo. Text Kills has a proven record in community outreach and safety awareness, and is dedicated to educating about the deadly issue of distracted driving. The Text Kills Tour Bus traverses the country, collecting signatures on its sides from people pledging not to text and drive. K-JAM Wild Hearts will be sure to continue in this tradition of educational entertainment and the collaboration of top local teen talent with community leader Text Kills has already drawn a much deserved media frenzy, with Indie 104FM LA broadcasting the event live and local coverage by OC Weekly.
The Lineup: Crown Valley Parkway (Laguna Niguel), Juice Box Bandits (Fullerton), False Puppet (Santa Barbara), Ugly Paint (Laguna Niguel), and Later Days (Santa Monica) are sure to rock the 24,000+ square feet venue with their sets of indie rock and punk melodies. Attendees may recognize Later Days’ song “PCH (Hustle This Place)” as the theme song of the VH1 reality show Saddle Ranch or from its rotation on KIIS FM, who awarded the band their Breakout Star Award in 2010. The emcee for the evening will be Text Kills Producer/Volunteer Blake Stoudt of Laguna Niguel.
