Ok, so here’s how it is: Just because there’s less oil from the BP spill floating around now doesn’t mean that that shit is over. It’s right around now that we’re starting to feel the real effects of this great misdeed. Tourism – the unfortunate lifeblood of our fair city of New Orleans – is super low this fall – restaurants closin, less drinkin’, Saints ain’t doing so good – and it’s trickling into the families. Less money = less food, poorer education for the kids. That’s some fucked up shit.
Let’s help fix that shit.
Coleman Jernigan has helped to organize a coalition of friends, musicians, and advocates to assist the United Way of Greater New Orleans to host a day of benefit concerts at The Howlin’ Wolf and Howlin’ Wolf Den in the Warehouse District of New Orleans.
