Many of us "Rock The Bald" because of our advanced age and thinning hair. Others, including our friends Zolopht, are shaving their heads for St. Baldrick's and have much more to lose.

Earlier this year Zoploht threw out the "Rock The Bald" challenge. The guys challenged every band out there to help raise money and awareness for childhood cancer research by “braving the shave” for St. Baldrick's. The band that raises the most money will be invited to play a gig with the guys later this summer at Warehouse 2565.

According to St. Baldrick's, only about 4% of U.S. federal funding is dedicated to childhood cancer. By showing their support, bands are trying to raise awareness about this issue, while simultaneously raising money for research. We'll have the results soon and know who won the challenge. In the meantime, tomorrow is "D-Day" for the guys in Zolopht. The "Brave The Shave" gig goes down at the Lincoln Park Barn from 11 A.M. to 4 P.M. on Saturday, June 24. Come out watch the show and support the cause.
