Solo side project of Dallas Green (guitarist/vocalist of the St. Catharines post-hardcore/punk band Alexisonfire). The name comes about from his own name: Dallas is a city, Green is a colour. His full length debut CD "Sometimes" was released on November 1, 2005. It features acoustic songs Dallas has been writing for the past 10 years.
City and Colour also appears on Neverending White Lights' collaborative album Act 1: Goodbye Friends of the Heavenly Bodies, contributing vocals to the song "The Grace".
As cancer continues to dominate the leading causes of death by disease in North America, skate4cancer recognizes major organizations devoted to finding a cure in the near future. While our medium of support may vary, our objective remains: to foster a public awareness of cancer in its multiple forms and an appreciation for cancer-research and support teams within national hospitals. Our initiatives target the youth audience to actualize their potential in the fight against cancer.
In November 2005, Founder Rob Dyer organized a concert event at Torontos MOD Club Theatre, with headliner Dallas Green of City and Colour. The event marked a renewal for skate4cancer; with the first skate under his belt, Rob felt that s4c could expand in new directions, targeting the significance of music within the skateboarding scene. The sold-out event was a major success, and raised $9000 for Princess Margaret Hospital.
skate4cancer will continue so long as the fight against cancer remains unresolved. If people wish to donate to the cause, we will continue to skate. If people have yet to hear of our cause, we will continue to tour.
Skate4Cancer Does Not Take Donations, We Do This Out Of Love!
