Santa Fe Brewing Company next Saturday (May 5, 2007) is hosting a benefit for the city of Clovis, which was hit hard last month tornados.
All door proceeds from the "Caught by the Wind" show will go to the United Way of Clovis. To donate online CLICK HERE.
According to a press release from SF Brewing, volunteers are needed to help stage te event. Email Jeff if you can volunteer.
Saturday's going to be a great day for music here. Dengue Fever is playing at Quadstock at the College of Santa Fe that night. I'm going to try to make both. (And the Drive-By Truckers and Alejandro Escovedo are at the Lensic the night before.)
Santa Fe Brewing has done a great job bringing music to this town. (For example, Robert Earl Keen is tonight and John Hammond, who has a cool new album, is coming May 25). I'm glad they're getting involved with helping people too.
And hell, Clovis was where Buddy Holly made most of his magic. WE OWE THEM! (I believe theb ghost of Buddy spoke to me a coule of weeks ago when I was in Clovis. I was at Twin Cronnie Drive-In eating a chili dog, listening to my iPod on shuffle when "That'll Be the Day" came on. It was a sacred miracle!)
The Caught by the Wind line-up includes:
The JEFF STRAHAN BAND
BILL HEARNE & Friends
BUSY McCARROLL & the Ambassadors of Pleasure
The GEORGIE ANGEL BLUES BAND
LUNA de PLATA
LOVE LIES BLEEDING
$10 COVER -- ALL AGES
