The 3rd Annual Autism Rocks concert is being held at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica from 3pm to 5pm on Sunday, September 16. It will be an afternoon of celebration, and an opportunity for people on the autism spectrum to showcase their talents.
This year’s Autism Rocks show will be hosted by the founder of Autism Rocks and Secretary of Swag Squad Inc., Alex Lin. The concert will be headlined by Dylan Dunlap, Logan Heroes, Elvis Suissa (frontman for Three Bad Jacks), and Miracle Project Live, featuring Soulshocka.
“I am a 19-year-old kid with mild Asperger’s Syndrome,” reveals Alex Lin. “I started this concert with one mission in mind: to spread awareness and educate others on the topic of autism. Growing up as a person with Asperger’s, I felt like no one understood or supported me, so I wanted to create an event that would educate others and showcase the talents of people with autism, and illustrate that people on the spectrum are as talented and valuable as anyone else.”
