The perils of the Gulf oil spill are far from vanishing, which is why Bay for the Bayou is an event definitely worth attending. For the Bayou, a new philanthropic organization, is teaming up with local non-profits to put on a silent auction and concert full of New Orleans musicians to benefit the Gulf and its residents at the glorious Bimbo's 365 Club on September 19th.
Anders Osborne, Ian Neville, George Porter, Jr., the Honey Island Swamp Band (one of New Orleans most exciting acts today) and other gems pack the lineup, bringing to some serious NOLA flavor to our city by the Bay. Grab tickets here.
New Orleans artists will also perform around the city: JUICE will shake things up at the Boom Boom Room and Zigaboo Modeliste will play at Pier 23 Cafe on the Embarcadero. 100% of the proceeds from every single performance will go to aid the Gulf oil spill relief efforts. Have a night on the town to benefit those who really need it!
