Episode #48 - Benefit for Samantha!
Friends of Smiley with a Knife,
We'll be heading into the studio next week to record. But before we do, we're going to play one last show for you guys at Hey!Cafe on Magazine street this Friday, December 18th. This show is very important to us because this show is to benefit our good friend Samantha Horn.
In 2007, she lost use of her legs and partial use of her hands in an accident. Her ultimate goal is to move back to the New Orleans area, but she would need improved mobility in order to do so. The "Roll 2 Walk" program is an aggressive physical therapy program that provides the education, environment, and exercise training necessary to help her achieve her goal of walking again.
Our goal is to raise $2,000 to help her pay for the "Roll 2 Walk" program. With your help, we can make that happen.
Here's the plan:
Greg Rodrigue of Fatter than Albert and Community Records now owns Hey!Cafe on Magazine St. (formerly Magazine Perks, next to Ms. Mae's)
We are going to set up in the middle of his tiny coffee shop, and we're going to play a full set.
The Rooks, The Craft Brothers, and Rabbit will all be doing the same starting at 7pm.
What we're asking you to do is to cram in around us, in front of us, next to us... heck - sit on my shoulders while we play if that's the only place you'll fit.
Wish Sam a happy birthday, and give her a little bit of money while you're squeezing into the last crevice of the room that you'll fit into.
Oh, and buy some coffee, "alternative beverages," food, or something from the art auction while you're at it.
If 100 people show up, we can pull this off at $20/head, which is feasible if you're eating, drinking, and showing some Christmas spirit.
If you're light on cash, the solution is simple - bring a friend! Your friend can help Sam out too! And hear us!
