You're probably familiar with the (RED) campaign. Since it began in the spring of 2006, it's raised more than $130 million to work towards eliminating AIDS in Africa, a daunting task needless to say. It's but one of the many pronged efforts by the Global Fund, and one that has connected with music. (RED) NIGHTS is a series of concerts across the country that will not only draw attention to the program with hopes of sparking action, but will also raise even more money for a cause that should be all of ours.
Below you'll find the remaining concerts in the series for the year. Consider attending one, or supporting the (RED) campaign in some fashion.
