So tonight (THURS Nov 15), Ross and I are performing with some others at a hurricane relief benefit concert at the beautiful St John’s Lutheran Church in Greenwich Village, also known as the Christopher Street Coffee House, as part of the once-monthly Songwriter’s Beat concert series, organised by Val Ghent.
ALL proceeds made on the door will be donated to local grassroots relief efforts. Some of it will go to help musicians who lost their instruments when their studios were flooded, and the rest will go to pop up grassroots organisations run by concerned New Yorkers who were first responders in the aftermath of the storm, bringing hot food and essential emergency supplies while official agencies were still scratching their arses. In the main these relief efforts have been peopled and supplied by locals with tremendous dedication and hard work. People heard the call, cooked, donated and delivered hot food, hot chocolate, blankets and emergency supplies to those left without electricity, water and heat, and their efforts continue.
So we’d love to see you later. Come on down.
