Last week, I wrote about a number of local music events aimed at helping Haiti. The list has kept growing, so I figured an update was in order.
- Local bands Acoustic Highway and Boxcar Figaro are combining for a Haiti benefit concert Saturday night at Full Circle Brewing Co. Expect a night of unplugged rock and folk. 8 p.m. $6.
BLUES AT THE TOWER
- Tower Theatre is set to host a big blues benefit on March 27, featuring a who’s who of the local blues scene. It’s organized by the Central Valley Blues Society. Scheduled to perform: MoFo Party Band, Rudy Parris Band, Deja Blues, The Lucky Lopez Band, Cole Fonseca and Loose Gravel Blues Band. I’ll post more info on this as I get it.
TURN IT UP
- Many of the DJs from B95 have put together a Help 4 Haiti benefit next Thursday at North India Bar & Grill in Clovis. What’s cool about this one is that the restaurant is even kicking in some of its food and bar sales.
A FRAT PARTY FOR HAITI
- Yep, even the Fresno State frats are getting involved. The Delta Upsilon Chapter House, at 4307 E Sierra Madre Ave., is hosting a night of local rock on Friday (aka tomorrow, aka Feb. 5). There’s a talent show starting at 5:30 p.m. followed by a concert at 7:30 p.m. from The Escorts, Tokyo Death March and Life at Twilight. It’s free to get in, but donations will be collected.
