This was sent to me from Jim, the lead singer of UB, the band I mention frequently. If you can, and you're in the area, please try to make it. Two days after September 11 of last year, UB decided to go on with the show, to honor the dead, to celebrate and thank the living, and to bring comfort to those who were suffering around them. They donated their proceeds that night to the Red Cross, and raised close to $800, as I recall, which was significant, considering that the pub wasn't it's usual packed crowd. Since that time, they have always remembered, on numerous occasions, those who lost their lives that day. So without further adeux:
Members of our band, Uisce Beatha, are going to do a concert in the Commons at St. Paul's Church at 8:30 pm on September 10, 2002 on the eve of the anniversary of September 11. We are calling it "Songs of Courage & Faith," and it will be the songs we need to sing, and guess some people might like to hear and sing along with. It won't be our usual Irish American Pub Music show.
Admission is free, but St. Paul's will take up a collection for its poor and needy fund.
So, if you're still pissed, sad, scared, searching for closure, as a result of that day, do yourself a favor and come.
