The DVD launch party will take place on January 27th in Los Angeles, and will feature a live performance by the indie folk-rock band the Honey Bros., a.k.a. the band in which “Entouarge” and “Adventures of Power” star Adrian Grenier plays drums. It will also serve to advertise a concurrent online auction that will benefit VH1’s Save the Music Foundation, which ensures that children have access to a musical education and instruments.
The auction will kick off online on CharityBuzz.com on January 25 and run through February 22. Auction items include celebrity-signed instruments such as an autographed cymbal from Ringo Starr and signed drums from Neil Peart of Rush, Marky Ramone of the Ramones and Lars Ulrich of Metallica. Fans will also be able to bid on “experiential” items such as lunch with Marky Ramone and an acting audition with “Role Models” director David Wain.

Boasting a butt-kicking soundtrack of both new music and hits by Rush, Phil Collins and Dazz Band, as well as an all-star cast that includes Ari Gold (the real guy, not Jeremy Piven’s character from “Entourage”), Jane Lynch, Grenier and Michael McKean, “Adventures of Power” follows a mine worker named Power (Gold, who also wrote and directed) who uses his air-drumming skills to save his hometown and change the world.
“’The Adventure of Power’ DVD kick-off benefits the VH1 Save The Music Foundation because music saved my life, and music is the heartbeat of the movie,” Gold said in a press release. “The next generation of kids shouldn’t be denied the chance to learn music, since music education has been proven to actually build a capacity for all learning. I’m amazed and humbled by the generosity and support from the people who have donated to the auction, and I’m grateful to Phase 4, Onitsuka Tiger and Charity Buzz for making this happen.”
