“Rock for RSD” Show Featuring Local Bands to be held at Plymouth Memorial Hall on May 29th

Help support a great cause and make a difference in the lives of people with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) by attending Sammie Barrett’s “Rock for RSD” show at Plymouth Memorial Hall, 83 Court Street in Plymouth, on Saturday, May 29, 2010.

“Rock for RSD” is sponsored by King Collision Centers of Plymouth, Raynham and Pembroke.

The show was developed by Ms. Barrett to create awareness for RSD and to help raise money for a cure. Proceeds are donated to the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association (RSDSA).

Ms. Barrett, who is a junior at Plymouth High School, was diagnosed with RSD in eighth grade after she sprained her ankle in ballet. RSD is a chronic, painful and progressive neurological condition that can develop after an injury or surgery. It can affect the bones, joints, skin or muscles. The pain can start in one area, then spread to other areas and may or may not include nerve injury. According to the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association of America (RSDSA), the condition develops after one to two percent of bone fractures. The condition is also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).

This is the second annual Rock for RSD show to raise awareness of RSD, and it will feature nine great local bands: New Ditty, TooBoKou, Wicked Sea of Lions, Dilysi, Walk Harbor City, Life on Hold, The Hollow Sound, Groove Juice, and (The) Jefferson Concorde.

Advanced tickets are on sale for $10 at Plymouth Memorial Hall and online at http://www.memorialhall.com/rsd.html.

Tickets will be $15 at the door on the night of the show. To order tickets by phone, contact 508-747-1622 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Box office hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and calling ahead is advised.
