The Giving Spirit of the Holiday Season: Part I

Heaven knows that it's easy toget all caught up in the spending and shopping frenzy of the holiday season. But before you spend hours and hundreds of dollars at the mall, let me remind you the old cliché: it is better to give than to receive. So over the next week or so, I'll be highlighting some ways to not only do good deeds, but where you can help support the music scene in some way, shape, or form.

Tonight would be a wonderful night to get into the charitable spirit. If you know Chelsea Callahan, aka Dirty Cha Cha, I'm sure you're familiar with her Rock & Roll Charity Galas she does every year around her birthday. This year's gala is number four, and it's sure to be a killer show. For a mere $5, you get Little Big Horn, Brake! Vegas, Dove Hunter, Glen Farris, and you also get Joe Butcher playing DJ, and last but not least, Andrea Grimes hosts this fun filled evening. Proceeds go to benefit the Carter Albrecht Music Foundation.

Oh, and I suspect Chelsea will personally accept any donations of alcoholic beverages for her birthday. After all, it is the giving season.
