Sonic Reducer @ Filthy MacNasty's - New Orleans hurricane relief benefit!
Like millions around the globe, Sonic Reducer club honchos Bigkegshandy and
Teen Slain have been left "shocked, and stunned" by the devastation wreaked
by hurricane Katrina upon the beautiful city of New Orleans.
Saturday September 10th will see Sonic Reducer hold its first night at new
home Filthy MacNasty's, and will feature a hefty dose of the finest New
Orleans/Louisiana-spawned funk and soul 45s, in tribute to the indomitable
spirit of the Crescent City. Fats Domino, Allan Toussaint, the Nevilles,
Dave Bartholomew, and other New Orleans music greats have (thankfully)
survived this disaster, but other Big Easy notables (including Bobby
Charles, Chuck Carbo, Cosimo Matassa, Frankie Ford, and local resident Alex
Chilton) remain missing at the time of writing.
During this Saturday's shindig, a voluntary collection will be made for the
Trinity Parish Church Episcopal Discretionary Fund, a non-governmental
organisation which is already helping New Orleans'
rock'n'roll community in rebuilding their lives.
So come on down to Filthy's, have a drink, a dance, check out the vintage
footage on the big screen, and drop some change in the bucket. After all, it
don't cost owt to get in ...
See you at the bar ...
