Last minute change: Bikes Across Borders Benefit location changed
Posted Mar 13 2009 4:09pm
The location for Saturday’ benefit for Bikes Across Borders has changed to the Club Deville, 900 Red River St. It had been at the Rhizome Collective, but the city is closing down the Rhizome Collective warehouse due to code violations with orders to move out by Monday.
It’s unknown how this will affect Bikes Across Borders, but $5 will get you into the benefit and there will be beer, food by Ararat, and music by Blue Hit, Til We’re Blue or Destroy, Buscando el Monte, Wino Vino, and the Bike Band. Again it will be Saturday night from 8 PM to 2 AM.
Bikes Across Borders (BAB) mission is to build solidarity partnerships by promoting autonomous transportation & cultural arts. BAB is based at the Rhizome Collective, a center for community organizing & urban sustainability in Austin, TX. Bikes Across Borders has organized more than ten bike delivery caravans since 2001, sending over 500 bicycles to Cuba, Mexico, and Central America.
