This weekend offers a twofer on rock shows that will help make the world a better place. In addition to "Se7en Sharp Shares," you've got War Chief's "War(m) Chief," which will collect coats, jackets and other items of warm clothing for The Van, part of the homeless outreach of The One Inc. They do good work, taking food, clothes, toiletries and other items directly to homeless folks.
Steady readers of the Times will likely be acquainted with War Chief, who played in the 2012 Times Musicians Showcase, making it all the way to the finals. The band has undergone some lineup changes this year, adding a fifth player and hitting the road for dates across the mid-South, including some shows down in The Live Music Capital of the World.
They also released their debut full-length, the very rewarding, 11-song "Love Letters from Prester John." This show will be a relatively early night, and a great way to wind down from the weekend and help out someone who hasn't been as fortunate.
War Chief frontman Grayson Shelton said donations of children's coats are especially welcome, so bring what you can.
