The inaugural “Rock the Foundation with Mike Modano” is a benefit concert from Epochal Artists Records and the Mike Modano Foundation, scheduled for Saturday, July 27, 2013, at Trees in the Deep Ellum area of Dallas. Bands featured at the concert include: ·      Bulletboys Burn Halo · Emphatic  Brand New Machine 

The concert will benefit DFW Rescue Me, an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) non profit organization whose goal is to reduce the number of animals euthanized in Dallas. DFW Rescue Me focuses on spaying & neutering, adoption programs and educating about responsible pet ownership. 

“I’m very excited about the concert,” Modano said. “These are some great bands and it should be a fantastic evening at Trees. Brand New Machine’s new album is being released that week and we’ll get to hear some of their newest stuff live. Emphatic is another great band that will be fun to see live, as will Burn Halo and Bulletboys. It should be a great jam. 

“As many people know, one of my passions is animals and pets, and DFW Rescue Me does a lot of work to help save hundreds of dogs each year. I’m proud to be able to help raise money for their efforts. It is a great organization.” 

Tickets for Rock the Foundation are on sale now, with general admission tickets only $15 on-line ($20 at the door). VIP tickets are also available for $100, with exclusive access to the balcony to hang with Modano and watch the show, as well as an Epochal Records swag bag. Trees’ doors will open at 5:00 pm for the first band.
