Spoon and Sony Playstation Dig in to Help New Orleans

Fresh off the cover of Spin Magazine and Saturday Night Live, Spoon (click photo for NOMRF.org) will be featured at the Sony Playstation NOMRF Benefit at One Eyed Jacks on Oct. 27th after performing at the Sony Playstation Stage at Voodoo Music Experience, with the late night show to benefit the New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund.

And NOMRF is looking forward to NOLAFest at Fat Harry's in New Orleans with Ingrid Lucia on Oct. 26th, with part of the drink proceeds to benefit the Fund. It wasn't long after Katrina when the Times Picayune's NOLA.com, having just returned to its building on Poydras, decided to host a party at Fat Harry's Bar and Grill on St. Charles and webcast it to the world, letting folks know that New Orleanians were back home to stay, says entertainment editor Keith Marszalek.

The night took on a whole new meaning shortly after Kermit Ruffins' first set when the N.O.P.D. was forced to shut down St. Charles Avenue due to the 1000+ locals who had come to hear the trumpeter's first set back in New Orleans. This year NOLA and Fat Harry's welcome back the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar, whose return to Uptown is just weeks away. Music will be provided by local vocalist Ingrid Lucia who's amassed an all-star lineup of area musicians ready to swing-out, New Orleans style.

NOMRF and some special guests are glad to be back this weekend, in the city that throws the greatest concerts in the world.

Keep watching for a new Save NOLA Store with merchandise to benefit Global Green, Habitat for Humanity and the New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund. Every contribution and instrument donation has made a difference. We could not do any of this without your continued support.
