Baam Aid NYC!


NYC's Apollo Heights will be performing

I know this event is not in Bed-Stuy, but I wanted to give it a shout out:

If any readers have relatives in the deep south, then you are probably familiar with the series of tornadoes which devastated a number of cities and towns on April 27th, 2011. Several cities in Alabama suffered tremendous losses of life, property and security. In response to the tragedy, the Birmingham Arts And Music festival (BAAMFEST), an annual festival that takes place in the city of Birmingham, quickly organized a series of concerts entitled BAAM AID. To date, they have raised over $5,000 for victims of the storms.

On Wednesday, July 6th, The Birmingham Arts And Music Festival, Sharrif Simmons & Greg Tate in association with Ubiquita Worldwide present:
