After the Deluge benefit set for Sept. 28 in Kingston

From our friends at the Kingston Digital Corridor.
"So normally, our monthly get-together is a friendly networking and catch-up event.
"Not this time. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that our region has been devastated by Hurricane Irene – followed by days and days of torrential rain. People have lost their homes, their stores… towns have lost roads, and whole downtowns. Farms have been lost. People are desperately in need of help. 

"On September 28th, KDC and the Ulster County Musicians Network will be doing something to help out. After the Deluge is a night of music in support of these folks. Thanks to our friends at the Watershed Post, we’ve found verified flood relief organizations in Ulster, Schoharie, Greene, and Delaware counties – the whole Catskills region.

All proceeds from this event will go to them. We’re asking you to pay what you can, but $15 bucks or more at the door, and the first beer is on us. We’re not maintaining a list of artists here, as it’s growing faster than we can keep up. But regardless of who ends up playing, it’s going to be a great night of music, and it’s for the worthiest of causes.

So please come out and show your support for your fellow Upstaters.

After the Deluge takes place Sept. 28 from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at Keegan Ales, 20 St. James Street Kingston.
