9/21 Rock and Rally for Victims of Oil Spill (with live stream)

A benefit concert to aid citizens of Venice, Louisiana, and help with restoration of the BP oil–stricken Gulf Coast. The fund-raiser is the idea of Melissa McGinnis (in video below), host of the hit “green” web series Greenopolis TV. The event is sponsored by the Whole Foods Market in Venice, California, and supported by surrounding communities to help their sister coastal town in Louisiana. From Venice for Venice’s web site:

Join us on September 21st at the Air Conditioned Supper Club in Venice, Calif. from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. for a great night of live music from several local bands and performers such as Adam Darling, Christopher Hawley Rollers, Love in the Circus, Velvet Nation, Leftover Cuties, members of the Lumanaries and The Gumbo Brothers. Door charge of $10, all of which goes to the Venice for Venice fund. More about the bands here.

Venice, Louisiana is one of the cities hardest hit by the recent devastating oil spill. Many families there have not yet received any compensation from either BP or the government and are without a source of income.

Make PayPal donations to the fund-raiser here.

Thank you, California. With love from Louisiana.
