The second annual Rockers for Knockers music festival will be held from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday at The Kamp, 2317 Hickory Ave., Harahan.
The event will feature six local bands. Those scheduled to perform are Rebel Cowboys at 1 p.m.; Nolafied at 2 p.m.; Nobody’s Bizness at 3 p.m.; The Topcats at 4 p.m.; Ambush at 6 p.m.; and Psychedelic Winter at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $20 in advance for adults, $25 at the door, and $10 for children ages 12 to 17 in advance or at the door. Children younger than 12 will be admitted free.
Tickets include food prepared and donated by local restaurants.
Cindy Wooderson is the publicity chairwoman for the event. She said festivities will include an inflatable for the children, face painting and a parade of prizes. There will be a raffle for a hand-painted electric guitar.
And the LSU-Florida game will be televised for those who want to watch it.
“Rockers for Knockers was the dream of the members of band Ambush, who wanted to show that when rock bands make a lot of noise, they can do it to bring awareness to those who battle breast cancer,” Wooderson said.
Rockers for Knockers has teamed up with the members of the local nonprofit organization Cancer Crusaders. The group has raised over $3 million for cancer research and divides the money between LSU Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center and Tulane Cancer Center.
