Help for Pleasure Club

Posted by on September 8 at 10:22 AM


James Hall, former lead singer of Pleasure Club, got out of his hometown of New Orleans with his wife and his son, a grocery bag of belongings, and two guitars. They’ve lost everything else.  James is up here in Seattle to play a show at Chop Suey on Thurs Sept 8TH. Details for the show can be found at here. The show had been scheduled prior to the hurricane hitting, and James is incredibly grateful to have his family safe and to be able to keep making music. Due to his present circumstances, the show will now be directly benefiting James and his family, so it would be great to get a huge crowd of people out in support.

Along with James Hall, the line-up for the show will be Robert Roth, Pat Macdonald and Gruesome Galore.

There are two ways to help out at this show:

1) Show up and pay the $8 cover - James is a hardworking, independent, and brilliant musician and the more we bring in at the door, the more he will have go directly to him, and his family.

2) Make a donation while you're at the show - we'll have some donation boxes out - probably split between ASPCA and the Red Cross.

Chop Suey is helping out by waiving most of the normal house fees for this show to benefit James further.
