It's a common theme by now: Local musicians and their fellow music lovers helping their kindred spirits in New Orleans and other areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina by giving what they have to give: music. Sara Bell--known for Shark Quest, Regina Hexaphone and Dish--launched this ambitious Saturday, Oct. 15 benefit for THE PRESERVATION HALL NEW ORLEANS MUSICIANS RELIEF FUND at the request of Jim Freeburn, former Zen Frisbee member and displaced New Orleans immigrant. The Countdown Quartet--the Triangle's brass band wagon--headlines, preceded by Dexter Romweber & The New Roman Times' primal stuff and Roman Candle's pop savvy. Bell, Jeffrey Dean Foster, Mark Holland, Eric Roehrig, Ken Mosher and more will participate in two songwriters' rounds beginning at 8 p.m. "New Orleans is like a Jerusalem to music lovers," Bell explains. Admission at LOCAL 506 is $10 and it includes a Big Easy meal of red beans and rice and a shrimp boil.
