It’s been a double weather-whammy for much of Nippertown over the course of the past two weeks, and many of our neighbors are suffering and struggling to recover. They need our help. So please consider making a donation of whatever you can – your time, money, food, clothing, furniture, etc.

As usual, the local music community has come together to offer its time and talent to help out, too. There are quite a number of flood relief benefit concerts on tap throughout the region, starting tonight. Here’s a round-up of some of the benefit shows. If you know about others, please let us know. And remember, the admission charge for these shows is just a suggested minimum donation. If you can give more, please do:
