Morning Metal – 457 The Edge – FEED THE NEED 2014 Interview


Our first interview for 457 The Edge was supposed to be for Feed the Need back in December of last year!

Thankfully, we can do it this year!

What is Feed the Need about?

Trinity: Hey James – Thanks for having us – glad to be back on Ottawa Showbox! This is the 8th Annual FEED THE NEED ft. SKATE4HUNGER Event at 457 THE EDGE and we are stoked! FEED THE NEED is all about raising awareness & food/items for the homeless & the hungry this Christmas season. Bands, Djs, Skaters and people in general Unite for One Epic night, supporting the Cause of Justice.

James: Eight years strong, thousands have joined the movement and made a difference in the lives of many people and families in need; bringing hope to those who have little to nothing at all by meeting the practical need, and showing someone cares when they may feel like they’re alone. Especially at Christmas time.

When is the Feed the Need going down?

James: FTN2014 is goin’ down This Friday, December 5th, at 457 THE EDGE [105 Slack Road], beginning at 7PM. It’s Free Admission, but bringing canned goods/non-perishables and items for the homeless will help the cause as well as give you free entry into the night’s grand prize draws.

Are there any special events happening with Feed the Need being the last show of 2014?

Trinity: What better way to end off 2014 than rocking out to six amazing bands, huge skateboarding competitions, massive prizing, intense gaming, all while helping those less fortunate have a great Christmas?! Sounds epic to me!

What do you guys have planned for 2015?

Trinity: We have a number of shows and events lined up for the new year, people can keep posted to our website and our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram pages for all the latest news and updates. @457theedge @revolution457
