Singing Samaritan

People in general are so often forgetful. We forget birthdays, anniversaries, our coats, where we put our cellphones, etc. And so what? Those little things don't matter. But what about when we forget the really important stuff? Immediately following the Hurricane Katrina disaster, lots of people did amazing things for survivors, making donations and opening up their homes. But the reality is that even two years later, it's not over, and thousands of people still need our help. So native Texan/songwriter/performer/all-around good Samaritan Kristy Kruger is taking up the cause with a benefit concert at the AllGood Café Wednesday, which marks exactly two years since the catastrophe. She'll be backed by Rose's Pawn Shop from L.A., who will also play their own set. The cover is $10, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross. For more information, visit or
