Austin For Joplin

In the 16 years I’ve lived in Austin, I’ve met quite a few Missourians who have made their way down to this fine city. In fact, I’m marrying a native Show-Me-Stater this October. These fine folk are proud to call Missouri home and are some of the kindest people you’ll ever meet.

Now, a few of these fine Midwestern transplants are doing their part to raise much needed relief for the devastated town of Joplin, MO.

This coming Tuesday, Kansas City native and singer-songwriter, Lucas Cook is hosting the “Jammin’ For Joplin” benefit at the Belmont (305 W. 6th) from 6-10pm.

Here’s a blurb from the facebook invite page for more information:

A Texas sized attempt to help the people of Joplin recover from the devastating Tornado! Missouri is the “Show-Me” state and being a Kansas City native, I wanted to put on a show to help the relief efforts back home.

There will be a live concert starting at 6:30pm. Doors are at 6pm with a suggested $5 minimum donation. Cash donations will be directed to the Red Cross and blankets, towels and clothing will be sent to Sacred Heart… Catholic Church or to a similar organization that will be able to distribute these items. The show will take place upstairs on the terrace at the Belmont.

Niki Covers the Cold will be there to help facilitate the collection of much needed blankets, towels and clothing. Look for special guests and celebrity appearances.

Showtimes are subject to change, so please keep up to date with THIS event page and spread the word, pass it on and let’s help some people out!!

6:30-7:15 Abel James
7:30-8:45 Jeremy Steding
9:00-10:00 Lucas Cook

Even if you can’t make the benefit, TVD Austin encourages you to do your part in helping by donating to the Red Cross. It’ll make you feel good!
