Nola benefit comp

We've been working on putting together a compilation of New Orleans underground bands to benefit Katrina relief efforts. Basically our idea is to get permission from about 20 bands, burn the cds ourselves, print decent looking cd labels and inserts at Kinko's, assemble them, and sell them at the various benefits here in NYC (there are a lot scheduled) and also on consignment at record stores, coffee shops, etc. 100% of the proceeds will go to Katrina relief. If anyone knows contact info for New Orleans underground bands, please email me. I think that this project could earn a decent amount of money for the cause and also promote the South Louisiana underground scene.

Cool. So far a lot of N.O. bands have been interested.

Actually so far, Burnversion, Men in Black, Rotary Down, Lump, Wayward Youth, Zydepunks, One Man Machine, The Other Planets, and it looks like Charm City Brokers and R. Scully are in on it.

That would be very cool. No one has a contact email or number for those guys though. The Normals would be good too, I've emailed them but haven't heard back. The Cold have given permission, and possibly The Tea Sea and Jak Rabit Feast if we can get hold of some of their music (all of their stuff is stuck in New Orleans).
