Slumgullion

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’ll start off with a special greeting for my wife Pam. As I’ve previously mentioned, she set up this blog for me, and has shown an amazing patience in all my less than lucrative creative endeavours. Here’s a clip of The Hollies singing their obscure but exquisite love song "Wings." It was the first song at our wedding.

The Go-Go’s will be headlining the Florida AIDS Walk and Music Festival on March 30th. The event combines a 5K walk with a live concert in a quest to increase HIV/AIDS awareness, and to raise funds to help people in Florida who are battling the disease. Attendees will be greeted with a welcome message from the stage at 9:00 AM that morning. The official website for the Florida AIDS Walk and Music Festival promise more information soon.

If you were among those of us who downloaded the U2 song “Invisible” around the time of the Super Bowl, you can pat yourself on the back for joining in the fight to find a cure for AIDS. The always-ready-to-back-a-good-cause Irish band raised 3 million dollars, in conjunction with (RED). Bank Of America donated $1 for every download of “Invisible.” And the added bonus? It’s a good song in the hallowed U2 tradition. 

The band Sh’ Bang will headline the Julia’s Legacy Of Hope Benefit to fight cancer on February 23rd at Bourbon Street in Merrionette Park. The event is in honor of Julia Janes, and runs from 1 to 6 PM. Admission is $30 for adults; $15 for 21 and under. The Oak Forest Teachers Band are also scheduled to perform, and there will be a DJ, Silent Raffle, and 50/50 raffle.

Congratulations to Mary-Arrchie TheatreIts current production of the Marilyn Campbell and Curt Columbus adaptation of Dostoyevsky's Crime And Punishment has garnered positive reviews and is now Jeff Recommended.
