Rock on

The following was in today's email.

Hey all! Here's something on a little lighter note.

I just heard about this on the radio today. I think it's very exciting. It looks like Memphis is going to be event central, between our own efforts and this being temporarily transplanted here.

The New Orleans Voodoo Musicfest is moving to Memphis the weekend of the 29th and 30th of October. The proceeds, of course, are going straight back to New Orleans to help Katrina victims.

I think that this is awesome. In a way, it's not only showing that the people of New Orleans are not helpless, but also it keeps the spirit of the city alive by giving the rest of us a reminder of what the city has to offer and will continue to offer.

Here's a partial list of who will be there...

Nine Inch Nails
Foo Fighters
Flaming Lips
Queens of the Stonage
Billy Idol
The Secret Machines
New York Dolls
Cake
Mickey Hart's Voodoo Drum Circle
The Bravery
Louis XIV
Carl Cox
Brazilian Girls
30 Seconds to Mars
Dan Dyer
Red Rockers Reunion
Noomoon Tribe
Joss Stone
Neville Brothers
Dr. John
