Allie was live in Woodland Hills to give us a preview of the 5th annual Shredfest, where kids battle cancer with a battle of the bands. The festival will hold an auction to benefit children’s cancer research with items such as signed guitars by the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney and records signed by Michael Jackson and other musicians.

Shredfest 5 will be on Saturday April 13th from 12pm-3pm at The House of Blues, Sunset Strip. Shredfest is a Battle of the kid bands with celebrity judges, silent auction and celebrity guest performers raising money for pediatric cancer research.  Kids will be participating in the event either as band members performing on stage, helping with the silent auction, selling merchandise, speaking on stage, and/or organizing the event.
