Our Bands Are on Fire, Sunday in Union Square

Loads of local musicians wanted to do something after the Columbia house fire two weeks ago, and the biggest event to come out of that outpouring of want-to-help from the community is this festival, this Sunday midafternoon through evening, all through Union Square:

What the former Columbia house residents need most now is to find new places to live, but this looks like an amazing event and $10 for the whole day is a great deal. Full schedule is on the Facebook event page.

I'm especially excited about this portion of the Precinct lineup:

[Edit: And I just learned that Flying Blue Squirrels, with Columbia resident Mary Bichner, have a set at Sally O'Brien's at 9pm. ]

P.S. There will be a Help, Our Bands Are on Fire #2 next Thursday ight, September 13th, at the Middle East
