MUSIC SAVES LIVES, the trusted conduit between music, entertainment and important life-saving causes, takes a new digital look at donation. Music Saves Lives has teamed up with unsigned artists Them Terribles, After Midnight Project, Run Doris Run, Ryan Gilmore, and Vogue and the Movement to register for the Donate Life California Organ and Tissue Donor registry. Each band on the tour has committed to giving away free digital downloads to concert-goers who attend register for the Donate Life California Organ and Tissue Donor. Concert attendees are asked to do two things: One, be a part of the Music Saves Lives / Donate Life California Organ and Tissue Donor and two, go on-line and learn about how easy it is to save a life by registering for the National Marrow Program through DKMS Americas.

MUSIC SAVES LIVES has registered over 7000 people under the age of 28 for the national marrow list through DKMS at concerts nationwide. Many of the bands that are involved with this west coast tour have supported Music Saves Lives in the last year by telling their fans that being part of the program can make a difference right where they live.

Donate Life California is a nonprofit Organ and Tissue Donor Registry dedicated to saving the lives of thousands of Californians awaiting life-saving transplants. On-line registration is available at

DKMS Americas marrow registration will be available on-line and in selected tour locations. The process only takes about 10 minutes using a simple and painless cheek swab, used for type matching of possible donors with leukemia patients waiting to be saved. All donors who register with DKMS Americas also become part of the WMDA (World Marrow Donor Association) and the NMDP (National Marrow Donor Program).
