Blues for kids

The great local blueswoman Catherine Denise (who had a terrific opening set for Gary Clark Jr. last week at Sam’s) will play a free show to benefit the No Kid Hungry campaign, a movement of “people committed to ending childhood hunger in America by 2015.” The show will take place 6pm-10pm Thursday, September 22, at Joe’s Crab Shack (4711 NW Loop 410). “I will donate 10 percent of all sales to No Kid Hungry,” Joe’s manager Jimmie Taylor told the Current. “There will be no ticket price and no donation buckets. All you have to do is show up, enjoy the music, and have a good time.” Oh, and eat and drink. For more information, visit,, and

And this time it’s “high-kicking, wood-cracking, whooping-cranin’, and scissor kicking” its canvasses. More than over 40 local artists (plus Austin’s Eek!

Meanwhile, DJ Louie Dollars will be hosting Wu-Tang karaoke. And the music is solid: local heavyweights Education and The Hawks (of Holy Rosary) plus The Great 85 going toe-to-toe against recent Austin transplants The Copper Gamins. $5-$8, 8pm Sat, Sept 24, White Rabbit, 2410 N St. Marys,
