Relief show for the New Orleans Musicians Clinic

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Parkside Lounge last week.  We raised about $200 for the Red Cross – a veritable drop in the bucket, but still, every little bit helps.

Please join us on 10/21 as we headline Rocking Liberally at the Tank in NYC ( 208 West 37th Street ).  The event is sort of an offshoot of “Drinking Liberally,” which is a monthly bar party for those durned liberul elitists.  All proceeds are going towards the New Orleans Musicians Clinic, a great organization that helps out New Orleans musicians even in the best of times (including a few past and present Afroskull members).  They are continuing to do great work in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

The night will begin around 8pm with Laughing Liberally (stand-up comedy), followed by Mike Blaxill of Gladshot at 9:30 and your favorite funk/rock orchestra, Afroskull at 11pm.  The event’s sponsors include Drinking Liberally, Music for America, Democracy for NYC, Cosmopolity, Citizen Action NY, New Democratic Majority, ACT NY, Billionaires for Bush, and Greene Dragon.

So it’s gonna be a funky good time, y’all.  But if you can’t make it and would still like to donate to the NOMC, here’s some info:

The New Orleans Musicians Clinic is determined to keep Louisiana Music Alive!  We want to relocate our New Orleans musicians into the Lafayette/ Acadiana community where they can remain a life force! But most of them have lost everything… we must help them rebuild their lives.  They can’t access any of their NOMC accounts. They desperately need money to fund these efforts.

Again, thanks.  We’ll see you at the Tank on 10/21.
