Jaycatt and Frogg at the "Dirty Grind" For "Stand Up To Cancer"

On September 6 from 5 to 6PM SL time, live musicians Jaycatt Nico and Frogg Marlowe performed live at the steampunk club "The Dirty Grind." Their act was part of a two day event at the club for "Stand up to Cancer."

For an hour, the duo performed various songs for the crowd, which included Lomgren Smalls (who recently ended a long hiatus from the Grid) and Roxikat Muse (whom in real life is artist John Barret).

There was another "Stand Up To Cancer" event that weekend at Ce Soir, which featured live music fron singer Gina Gracemount.

Stand Up To Cancer's Mission Statement included, "Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) mission is to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.  SU2C brings together the best and the brightest researchers and mandates collaboration among the cancer community. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C has set out to generate awareness, educate the public on cancer prevention and help more people diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors. ... SU2C’s funding is administered by the American Association for Cancer Research, the largest scientific organization in the world focusing on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research. Together with Stand Up To Cancer’s “Blue Ribbon” Scientific Advisory Council, comprised of world-class scientists across several disciplines and patient advocates, the most promising projects are identified, mentored, and funded."
