Rockin' Out for Autism in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, May 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Donnie Lawless may be a renegade internet radio broadcaster and production company promoter, but he still has a pretty big soft spot for kids, particularly those with disabilities - not exactly what you'd expect from a hard rocking producer.

Working in conjunction with the Hard Rock Cafe at Station Square, Lawless and his partner Jason Levis of 10 Street Productions have planned Pittsburgh's first annual Rock for Autism on June 11, 2008 to benefit the Autism Center of Pittsburgh.

"I'm thrilled to be a part of this," Lawless said. "We wanted to do something for kids with autism here in Pittsburgh. The First Annual Pittsburgh Rock for Autism will feature the nationally-known band Enuff Z'Nuff, Euphonic Brew and local singer-songwriter and Kean Idol champion Maddie Georgi.

Hailed by Rolling Stone magazine in the early 90's as the "hot new band," Enuff Z'Nuff appeared on The David Letterman Show when they released their top single "Fly High Michelle." The band will be joined by Pittsburgh's own Euphonic Brew, one of the most exciting and versatile bands to emerge from the Western Pennsylvania music scene. Fifteen-year-old Maddie Georgi rounds out the event with a soulful and powerful set.

Owner of 10 Street Production Jason Levis is thrilled to use music as a vehicle to touch the lives of children with autism. "Music has touched my life in many ways since I was a child. It's particularly gratifying to use music as the vehicle to, in return, touch the lives of so many who are challenged with autism. Autism is a lot more common than most people would realize, and that is why it is a great pleasure to associate with a local organization like the Autism Center of Pittsburgh to both educate the public and to help those in need."

Sponsored by , tickets for the event are available for $10 at, or $15 at the door.
