The Shins, The Rapture, and a whole bunch of other bands are going to be playing the Austin, TX stop of the mtvU Campus Invasion Music Festival ’07! And (!), the whole shebang, shindig, clambake, or whatever you want to call it (though, we’re betting “lollapalooza” is out of the question) is designed to generate awareness of the ongoing genocide in Darfur and funding to help end the bloodshed in the region. The folks behind this festival have partnered up with the Save Darfur Coalition – check their site out for more info.
