Non-Springsteen-related benefit concert post

Springsteen will kick off the next leg of his solo tour with a benefit for the Jersey Coast chapter of the American Red Cross on Tuesday night, but I've been asked to pass on the word about another concert, this time in the Boston area. Since a quick look at this blog's server logs suggests that many of its readers live in 617 Nation, I thought I'd pass on this note:

I’m working with a friend to make the below Hurricane Relief Concert a success. I hope you can come, and please forward to any music-loving friends. It’s going to be quite a show.
See you October 5th!
Tickets available at: www.bostonkatrinaconcert.com
NEW MUSIC, NEW HOPE, NEW ORLEANS
