Rock out with Jail Guitar Doors

As the massive SXSW festival was taking place in Austin earlier this year, a musical gathering of a very different kind was happening just a few miles away. Behind bars at the Travis Correctional Facility, eight women were strumming acoustic guitars, each with the Jail Guitar Doors logo painted on them. Practicing G chords, they represented the power of music to transform lives.

Take in the ROCK OUT! concert at the Ford September 5 - you’ll be supporting a program that has helped rehabilitate inmates across the US and be knocked out by amazing music all at the same time. Jail Guitar Doors USA co-founder Wayne Kramer, guitarist for influential pre-punk band MC5, has enlisted a few of his friends - Jackson Browne and Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello - to join him onstage, along with LA’s own lo-fi hero Tim Presley (aka White Fence). We wish we had friends like that.
