Benefit concert sings out for hurricane victims

Victoria bluesman and Maple Blues Award nominee Bill Johnson will headline a Dec. 3 show to support the victims of Hurricane Jova.

The natural disaster struck Oct. 12, flooding a portion of the Pacific coast of Mexico near Manzanillo known as Joy Coast. All proceeds will be used to buy non-perishable foods, blankets, clothes, feminine hygiene products, and diapers.

Direct donations can be made by contacting arianna_johnson@hotmail.com.

The show will also feature the "enviro-cowboy" lounge music of Children of Celebrities; the Joplin-esque sound of rhythm and blues band CURL; and the soulful harmonies of the Peet Vuur Band.

It takes place at St. Anne's auditorium, 835 Humboldt St.. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $20 available at Lyle's Place, Spiral Café, Larsen Music, Guitars Plus, or Mexican House of Spice.
