Music4Change 2009 set to rock out for woman's rights and climate change

VANCOUVER, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - Music4Change 2009, in support of Oxfam Canada, and featuring the latest independent up and coming Canadian bands, is set to rock the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver on Saturday, October 17th, the United Nations day for the Eradication of Poverty. This year's show has a special theme of woman in music, as Oxfam Canada concentrates its international campaigns on woman's rights and climate change.

"We are really proud to incorporate the theme of woman in music into this year's benefit show" said Music4Change coordinator Fleur Cooper. "Oxfam Canada does amazing work around the world in support of Woman's rights and poverty issues, and we have a strong list of bands this year, all female led, to help us highlight this work".
