MySpace recently launched its Rock for Darfur concerts aimed at raising awareness and funds for the humanitarian crisis in the African country of Sudan.
The series of gigs will be comprised of 20 benefit shows around North America that kick off October 21.
Among the artists pledging to donate part of their ticket proceeds from their concerts that day to Oxfam's relief efforts in the Sudan are Alice in Chains, TV on the Radio, Atreyu, Ziggy Marley, Teddy Geiger, the Secret Machines, Jamie Cullum, Citizen Cope, the Fray, Insane Clown Posse, Amos Lee and Gov't Mule.
Insane Clown Posse? Wow. Who knew those guys had a charitable bone in their bodies? I love the idea of gangsta clowns with hearts.
A public service announcement promoting the shows featuring Samuel L. Jackson will air in theaters this month. Presumably, ICP will not appear in those ads.
