Howe Gelb will be bartending for a good cause.
Chances are you've been at a Howe Gelb show and thought "Man, I wish that guy would make me a cocktail." Well, prepare to have all of your prayers answered on Thursday, Feb. 19 when Gelb and a handful of other local musicians go behind the stick to serve up drinks to benefit Downtown Radio
The forthcoming community radio station, which will broadcast on 99.1 FM, is looking to feature local music completely commercial free, so they're looking for some cash to get going. That's why musicians including Howe Gelb, Brian Lopez, Gabriel Sullivan, Pete Ronstadt, Bruce Halper, Alex Flores, Thoger Lund, and Winston Watson have signed on to help serve up some drinks to help Downtown Radio out.
From 4 until 6 p.m. at Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails, attendees can hang out with the celebrity bartenders while ordering drinks and learning more about Tucson's newest radio station. Guests will also get a free Downtown Radio sticker for showing up.
