Although you typically wouldn't hear genres like shoegaze, hard rock and folk on a bill together, all sorts of Tampa Bay musicians will gather next month at Shuffle for a good cause.

In the wake of the possible overturning of Roe vs. Wade, the bar and shuffleboard court at 2612 N Tampa St. will host a ‘Friends 4 Reproductive Rights’ fundraiser show on Saturday, June 25.
This gig will run from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. and will ask for a suggested $10 donation at the door. Proceeds will be donated to the Tampa Bay Abortion Fund (TBAF).

The eclectic lineup includes folky singer-songwriter Deb Ruby, hard rocking Tension Electric, Dan Padilla, singer and guitarist, along with Marc Ganancias, shoegaze band Knife Rituals, and Steve Tedesco.

In addition to the night of live music, there will also be a raffle and art auction to help raise more money for the TBAF. You can also enjoy Shuffle's indoor courts, a full service bar and late-night kitchen that dishes out tater tots, tacos, nachos, burgers,  hot dogs and more.

More details about this benefit gig can be found on its Facebook event page as the show nears closer.

There are extensive details about abortion resources on the Tampa Bay Abortion Fund website, in addition to information about insurance, clinics and legislative updates. TBAF is a volunteer-run 501c3 nonprofit that relies solely on donations from the community, and has been providing its vital services throughout Tampa Bay since 2018.

Visit abortionfunds.org to learn more about the organization’s lifesaving work, and maybe make a donation while you’re at it.
