ROUND-UP III: Hurricane Irene Flood Relief Benefits

Ten Year Vamp

Ten Year Vamp (shown here at SPAC last summer) will perform at Capital Region Relief on Thursday at Proctors


It’s been nearly a month since much of Nippertown was hit with severe flooding, and many of our neighbors are still suffering and struggling to recover – including some of our own regular contributors. 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:
