Seattle band Quickie takes a stand against domestic abuse.
March 8th, 2012— SEATTLE, WA — Seattle pop-punk band Quickie, who most recently penned a song celebrating Emerald City superhero Phoenix Jones, is taking a stand against domestic violence by teaming up with Phoenix Jones and his wife Purple Reign.
The Healing Reign Music Benefit and Auction will take place May 12th at Nectar in Fremont. Ghost Town Riot joins Quickie on the bill, but itâ€™s the message that takes center stage.
â€œPurple Reign was a victim of domestic abuse, so this is a cause thatâ€™s very personal for her,â€ explains Quickieâ€™s Lou Trez. â€œOur hope is to spread awareness and raise money for NW Family Life while putting on an unforgettable show. I mean, great music and costumed superheroes? How do you not go see that?â€
In addition, for the next year Quickie is donating a percentage of the net proceeds of the â€œPhoenix Jonesâ€ song download to the Purple Reign Campaign, whose slogan is â€œeveryday heroes against domestic abuse.â€
â€œWe are excited and honored to help out Purple Reign and give back to the community,â€ says Trez ” They (Purple Reign and Phoenix Jones) are amazing people making positive a difference”.
