June 3, 2009 - PRLog -- At the Star Bar, located in Atlanta's Little Five Points neighborhood, Pop Death Squad presents "Baby I'm A Star" - a tribute to Prince and benefit for St. Francis' Table soup kitchen. Artists slated to appear include Chilton Music Project, Edenrage w/Chanda Leigh, Grace, the Greater VaVoom, Karma Lingo, Kyshona, the Lost Boys, Madam CJ, Ozlo, Quench, Tendaberry, Tous Les Jours, and Y-O-U.  The event is on Friday June 12, 2009. Doors open at 9 PM.

Conceived as a way to have fun celebrating the music of Prince while raising awareness
that hunger is a year-long concern for many, the "Baby I'm A Star" benefit is a collaboration between Pop Death Squad - an Atlanta collective of good-time facilitators otherwise known as Luis Sandoval, Wes Hoffman and Jonathan Baker - and local musician Tami Stanko.

Why Prince and why now?  "Especially in these times, I felt it was important to do a sort of Christmas-in-June show to remind us all that so many folks need help, not just during the holidays when most of us are feeling generous", said Stanko.  "And who better than Prince - he seems to be loved by everyone", she continued.  "He breaks down barriers".

Started over 20 years ago to address the lack of food for the hungry available on Saturdays,  St. Francis' Table now feeds over 500 persons each Saturday.  Several organizations including church groups, college and high school students and volunteers from companies participate in preparing and serving the food.

Funded through private personal and grant donations, St. Francis' Table does not receive funding from the church it is located in nor from the Archdiocese.  A food pantry is also available for the hungry via written referral several days during the week.
