BROKEN BELLS have announced a partnership with the B612 FOUNDATION beginning with the band's APRIL West Coast tour. During these dates, $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the foundation to help fund their Sentinel Mission.
Included in this upcoming tour is a show at the FONDA THEATRE in LOS ANGELES on APRIL 15th. Following the show, BROKEN BELLS and the B612 FOUNDATION will be hosting an after party on the FONDA THEATRE rooftop. Guests will include BRIAN BURTON and JAMES MERCER of BROKEN BELLS as well as Dr. MARC BUIE, the mission specialist on the SENTINEL project, and RUSTY SCHWEICKART, APOLLO 9 astronaut and co-founder of the B612 FOUNDATION, as well as other astronomers and dignitaries.
The mission of the B612 FOUNDATION is to create the first comprehensive and dynamic map of the inner solar system to provide early warning of dangerous asteroid impacts as well as prepare the path for future exploration. To be launched in 2018, SENTINEL will be the world's first and largest privately funded deep space mission.
