Just back in town after a hilarious trek through south Georgia, local rock trio Leslie are ready to kick off the first installment of the five-night “Move For A Change” series at the Village Tavern tonight. It’s an all-ages, free-of-charge event benefitting a variety of local charities.

[image-1]Lead singer/guitarist Sadler Vaden, bassist Jason Fox, drummer Jonathan Carmen, and manager Josh Terry fueled up on grub at Ray’s BBQ earlier today (see photo), following an acoustic mini-set on ABC News 4’s Lowcountry Live. “We played a song called ‘Devil Ain’t Ready’ and all these little kids were clapping along,” laughed Vaden.

Tonight’s event at the Tavern features up-and-coming local band All Get Out, a “very special guest” singer/songwriter from a prominent local band, and the local debut of Carmen’s new amber-colored, vintage-style, acrylic drum kit.

Proceeds from donations benefit the Ronald McDonald House. Upcoming shows benefit the Lowcountry Food Bank, the American Red Cross, the Lowcountry Environmental Education Project, and Pet Helpers. Doors at 8 p.m. and music starts at 9 p.m.
