Craig Klein, one of our favorite guys and a New Orleans native, was featured on HBO’s Comic Relief tonight. This year’s broadcast is a benefit for the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. Craig’s message: “We need to help people to try to get back home. It’s real important to have the people who are real New Orleanians to be here again — to try to make it what it was, or to try to make it better than it was.” To help out, Craig and a group of musicians are gutting musicians’ damaged homes so they can get back on their feet.
Bonerama, one of our favorite groups, is also the house band for the night. The broadcast will be re-aired, so be sure to check it out if you haven’t already. A word of warning — the language is colorful.
