Blood for beer: Jannus Live, Florida Blood Services offering free beer, music on Saturday




If anything can draw a crowd to a blood drive, free beer and music should do it.

On Saturday, Jannus Live and Florida Blood Services will present a night of music, drinks and more at the Jannus Live Blood Drive. Among the talented local artists taking the stage: Geri X (above), Tres Bien, Mighty Mongo, Jeremy Thomas Band, Will Erickson and Paint the Town Red.

Price of admission? YOUR BLOOD!

Okay, that came out more sinister than we meant it. But come on, if you go to this event and don't donate blood, you're just letting good music go to waste. Plus, if you donate blood, you get a free draft beer (after donating) and a T-shirt. FREE T-SHIRTS, PEOPLE.

The doors open at 4 p.m., and the music starts at 6 p.m. The Florida Blood Services Bloodmobile will be on hand until 9 p.m. Click here for details.

And get the performance times of each artist -- so you can plan your donation time accordingly -- after the jump.
