The Red & the Black’s Web site doesn’t make it very clear what’s going on with tonight’s “Music Is Bulletproof” show; neither does the MySpace page it points to. Details on the show below:

EVENT DETAILS: Music is Bulletproof benefit for the Victims of Violent Crime Compensation Fund

Music is Bulletproof was founded by DJ Key-K after he was shot in 2006. As a result DJ Key-K has been unemployed since his shooting, but it hasn’t changed his will to make a difference in his community. This event uses music to bring peace, support and awareness to individuals, families and communities who are impacted by violence.

This year, Music is Bulletproof is focusing on the awareness of the U-VISA. The U-VISA provides support to non-citizens who experience substantial abuse resulting from a wide range of criminal activity and helps with the prosecution of the crime. The U-VISA also provides eligible immigrants with authorized stay in the United States and employment authorization. Unfortunately, the U-VISA is not a readily available or known about. For more information on Key-K and Music is Bulletproof visit, www.myspace.com/music_is_bulletproof

Only by coming together can we create violence-free communities.

Event will feature: Trinidad resident- Dj Mellie Mel (80’s Alternative) Dj Seth B (Master of Old School Hip Hop, Reggae & Funk) Dj Key-K (World Music)
