On Monday, September 5 - Labor Day - from 4pm til we finally disperse - DJ's will be throwing down their best sets, and taking requests at $1 a play while our bake sale, raffle, record swap meet and rock n roll yard sale goes on in the background. 100% of the proceeds will be going to musicians who lost everything.

Some of the cool items you can buy a raffle ticket for include a set of 6 vintage paperbacks by Ian Fleming from the James Bond series. Vintage branding irons, a cool mini amp, great vintage clothing belonging to a former model.... how can you pass this up? I am going to put together a mini album of Dirtbombs 4x6 proofs...Mick Collins's Gories bandmate, Peg O'Neill had to flee her New Orleans home during the hurricane and is taking refuge in Tennessee. She's one of the people we're intending to help.
