Aiming to reduce the rates of HIV and STD infections among the youth demographic, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has teamed up with pop-punk solo performer Eryn Woods, who will be using her spring/summer tour with pop girl group The Millionaires to promote safer sex to their young fan base. The Eryn Woods and The Millionaires tour kicked off last week with four stops in California, and now progresses on to Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado, Montana, Ohio, Nevada, and Wisconsin over the next six weeks.

The tour’s first concert in the Pacific Northwest will be held tonight, Tuesday, April 29th at 7:00 pm at the Hawthorne Theater in Portland, Oregon. Each show will feature a performance of the safer sex awareness song composed by Eryn Woods for AHF, “It’s a Wrap,” a message to would-be paramours that the only way they’ll be allowed to get intimate is if they plan to “play it safe” by using a condom. Thousands of free condoms – donated to the tour by AHF – will be distributed at each show.

Though many songs by The Millionaires feature explicit lyrics about casual sex, all of the artists on the tour were excited by the opportunity to pair their party-promoting tunes with important messaging about protecting your health and the health of your partners.

“There are 9 million new infections among young people aged 18 to 24 every year, and that’s not something we can just stand by and accept,” said Eryn Woods. “The Millionaires and I are so honored that young people look up to us and listen to us, and we want to use that as an opportunity to deliver a positive message that could ultimately save a lot of lives.”

Following tonight’s Portland show, the tour will proceed on to Seattle and Salt Lake City before moving on to Colorado next week.
