Save the Birds: Oil Spill Benefit Show at the Bell House


The news is showing less video of oil soaked pelicans as time goes on, but the oil from the BP spill is still hurting the animals and people of the Gulf. And you’re probably thinking to yourself, “How can I help the shrimpers who can’t shrimp, the sea turtles trying to build their nest on petroleum beaches and the wetlands plants trying to grow?” The answer is: rock n roll.

Tomorrow night, the Bell House is hosting the S.P.I.L.L. (Saving Precious Industries and Lives in Louisiana) Benefit concert. Bands include Paul and the Patients, Arpline, Brothers, Diehard and Fancy Colors. The money raised will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank in New Orleans and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. In case awesome music for a good cause isn’t enough incentive, there will be Cajun food and $4 44 North Vodka drinks. Helping dolphins hasn’t been this easy since you learned to cut the plastic six-pack rings!

About the author

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
