Geeks Care: How You Can Help Adopt the Arts, Love and a .38, and Hard Rock Int’l

When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the FBC staff hopes to offer our readers a myriad of opportunities to give back to the community. We love reading comics, watching movies, and playing video games, but we are never happier than when we are able to help others in need. With Geeks Care: How You Can Help, FBC will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.


At Fanboy Comics, we strive to bring talented artists and worthwhile opportunities to our readers.  We hope that these efforts assist creative people in dong what they love while also offering the chance for fans of all geekdoms to discover and support new properties, furthering the importance and value of the arts in our lives.  For that reason, this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help focuses on local LA rock band Love and a .38, which will be soon be donating an instrument from their personal reserve to Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood’s world-famous memorabilia collection in conjunction with a charity raffle and performance to benefit local charity Adopt the Arts.  Be sure to read on to find out how you can help in the momentous occasion by celebrating and advancing arts education.

On June 25, 2015, at 9 p.m., Love and a .38 will be donating their Luna Gypsy Pre Bass to Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood at Universal CityWalk's memorabilia collection, which boasts nearly 80,000 pieces worldwide.  In honor of the donation, Hard Rock will also host a charity raffle and serve specialty cocktails to benefit local charity, Adopt the Arts, an organization that brings together well-known artists, public figures, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and the general public to save the arts in America’s public schools. Sponsors of the memorabilia donation and charity raffle will include Stage Ninja Cables, Ashdown Amps, Hipshot Products, Graphtech Labs, Loxx USA, Boulder Creek Guitars, D’Addario Strings, Pick Grips, Multi Sonus Audio, VooDoo Labs, Grover Allman Guitar Picks, Mono Cases, and Hercules Stands.  Following the auction, Love and a .38 will perform for the crowd.

Adopt the Arts (ATA) was initiated in response to continuous budget cuts in Arts education throughout the US, and especially in LAUSD.  Legendary drummer Matt Sorum and mother-of-two Abby Berman co-founded ATA with the idea that we all share a responsibility to invest in our future and to ensure that our children are prepared to thrive in the demanding global environment of the 21st Century. With so many studies clearly indicating a critical developmental relationship between art, music education, and academic achievement, the case for supporting Arts instruction in elementary school is compelling.

For those interested in making a donation or getting involved Adopt the Arts, readers may visit the organization's official website.  In addition, please note that Love and a .38's donation event at Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood at Universal CityWalk is free to attend. You can also learn more about Love and a .38 at the band's website
