Gigs For The Gulf
Avatar by Jeff Taylor of Neil Young Tribute
Details are a bit sketchy at this point, but it does look like Neil Young's upcoming Gulf state gigs, will have a charitable component to support communities impacted by the BP oil gusher disaster.
From Pensacola News Journal (via Bad News Beat Thanks bh!) according to Pensacola City Councilman Larry B. Johnson:
"Young's concert also will have a charitable aspect, with attendees encouraged to bring nonperishable food items for a food drive."
(Just as an aside, does anyone find the Pensacola City Councilman's name just a bit... eerie??)
Back to Gigs For the Gulf & Neil Young. Well, we just find this to be a really fabulous development to hear that Neil's Gulf tour will have a charitable component.
We've found that putting together the Gigs For The Gulf FaceBook page to be quite a rewarding experience. There are truly a lot folks hurting down in the Gulf region and many are expressing their feelings thru music.
Each day, we see many submissions of homegrown music videos made by ordinary people trying to make sure they are not lost and forsaken. Thus far, we've helped coordinate several dozen G4G events around the country. This weekend's Gigs For The Gulf are:
- Free Concert for Alabama Coastal Foundation - Causeway, AL
- Sandestin Music Festival: August 13-14, 2010 - Destin, FL
- SpillCycle: Bike for Awareness! Dance for Relief! - Washington, DC
So, "Like" us on Facebook and spread the word on Gigs For The Gulf.
