Concert Turns It Down

More than 250 concert-goers attended the Evergreen Speech & Hearing Clinic's third annual EAR-responsibility concert in Kirkland, Wash. at the Kirkland 7/01/2008 8:00 AM Eastern

More than 250 concert-goers attended the Evergreen Speech & Hearing Clinic's third annual EAR-responsibility concert in Kirkland, Wash. at the Kirkland Teen Union Building in mid-May. Patrons heard (under 100dB) performances by musicians from the Seattle music scene (including Portugal the Man, pictured, and Man Down Medic) while increasing their awareness of hearing protection — free earplugs were given out at the door and raffles were held throughout the show for in-ear monitors and custom-molded ear plugs (which were also available for purchase at cost). A total of 17 impressions were made for custom-fit earplugs and $1,614 was raised through admission and raffles; all proceeds went to the venue to obtain new sound equipment and a limiter to ensure that it is a safer listening space. Sponsors from the pro audio sector included Grammy U, Westone and Oticon.
