Benefit for the Haitian Health Foundation, March 6, VAC


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.

Saturday, March 6, 8 p.m., $5-$15 donation. VAC, 3638 Osage St., Garden City,
