90’s hit-makers Sponge will host the first ever “Sponge-O-Thon” on Wednesday June 4 at Three Blind Mice Irish Pub (10 North Main St) in Mount Clemens, Michigan. Inspired by the legendary Jerry Lewis Telethon, Sponge’s event will run from 6 pm EST – Midnight and feature live performances by the band, plus special guests including snake wielding belly dancer Shetan Noir and Adam Arcana Sideshow. Admission is FREE and ages 18+ are welcome to attend.

Sponge-O-Thon will raise funds for the band’s PledgeMusic campaign which finances the band’s summer tour, in addition to partially benefiting Michigan-based charity Eastside Teen Outreach.

Ending on June 11, Sponge’s 90-day PledgeMusic campaign offers exclusive premiums in exchange for pledges. Premiums range from autographed copies of Sponge’s soon-to-be-released “Rotting Alive” CD (a live recording of the band’s classic Rotting Piñata record) to an opportunity to record a song with Sponge. Other highlights include private in-home shows, handwritten lyrics, videotaped music dedications, guitar lessons and even a personal guitar smashing on stage.

“We thought the Sponge-O-Thon would be a fun way to bring the PledgeMusic campaign to a close,” explained Sponge’s lead singer Vinnie Dombroski. “We’ll be performing acoustic versions of almost every song in the Sponge catalog, in addition to hosting some fantastic special guests.” He added.

About Sponge:
Hailing from Detroit, Sponge gained widespread notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata." Hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)" fueled massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV in the late 90's. After "Rotting Piñata" went Gold, the band toured internationally, and followed up with the critically lauded CD “Wax Ecstatic,” garnering additional hits "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen Mary?”

Sponge continued to tour nightclubs and festivals including Lollapalooza, and most recently, the wildly successful Summerland Tour with Everclear, Filter and Live. In late 2013, Sponge inked a deal with New York’s The End Records (Danzig, H.I.M.), unleashing their seventh studio release “Stop the Bleeding,” now available on Itunes, Amazon.com and Cdbaby.com

Sponge is celebrating 20 years of Detroit rock and roll and continuing their legacy via PledgeMusic. For a video retrospective of the band visit:
