Breeders, Stephen Malkmus, Ringo Starr Play In Bed For Sick Kids
The Breeders, Stephen Malkmus, and Methyl Ethyl were among 100 acts that participated in Bedstock, the online music festival designed to support hospitalized kids with cancer and other serious illnesses across the country. Yesterday participating artists performed songs in bed for children spending the holidays stuck in bed, while also raising funds and awareness.
The festival was organized by MyMusicRx, an organization that provides hospitalized children with musical instruments, iPads with music apps and games, and more. Bedstock was part of GivingTuesday yesterday, however it's not too late to donate to the cause. Head here to learn more and to donate.
