We've waxed on about the generosity of local musicians and here they go again.
Josh Galloway, bass player for instrumental rock trio Beautician has organized a concert to benefit the Haitian Health Foundation, a 28-year-old organization that works hard to make sure money gets where it needs to be. With overhead of only 8 percent, 92 cents of every dollar goes directly to help the Haitians. Galloway gathered some of the fore-rockers of Boise's music scene to help him raise funds--don't feel guilty if you're going because of them: Dirt Fisherman, Farm Days, Beautician and Tim Andreae. Beautician now includes Brett Netson on guitar; Farm Days is Doug Martsch, Brett Nelson and Ian Waters and was their first band; and all of the Dirt Fishermen--Gina Gregerson, David Grapp, Dan Krejci, Glenn Newkirk and KT Shanafelt--will be there.
