Take a step back in time to the 1960s at Rock the Cause’s Glitter Ball 6 Electric A Go-Go.

Popular Twin Cities Beatles tribute band, Rubber Soul, will take the stage as will some other cover bands playing all your favorites from Jefferson Airplane, the Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground, Donovan and more.

Whether you identify as a hippie, rocker or mod doesn’t matter. But you are encouraged to don your favorite ’60s attire and dance till your heart’s content.

You can also snap your pic in a FotoBomb photo booth, complete with a variety of super cool props to help you find your inner go-go style, and enjoy a cast of 1960s-era go-go models showing off the the groovy fashions of Laura Hlavac Designs.

There also will be a nice array of far-out music memorabilia and other items at the “free love” silent auction.

One hundred percent of the ticket purchase benefits Rock the Cause, a nonprofit that combines the power of giving with the power of music. In the organization’s eight years in existence, it has recruited more than 10,000 new members and/or volunteers for nearly 40 nonprofit organizations.

Their most memorable collaboration has been the production and distribution of Zach Sobiech’s song, “Clouds,” which has netted Children’s Cancer Research Fund close to one million dollars in less than two years.
