War! What is it good for? Absolutely jamming

Posted By on Thu, Oct 9, 2008 at 4:09 PM

Though the nation may have turned its attention to its dwindling 401(k)s, the Iraq war rages on, and tonight the group Military Families Speak Out (MFSO) will be hosting a jam session at Sweet Lorraine's Jazz Club to ensure the foreign battlefronts aren't forgotten.

Local musician Al Bernard, the father of a son who has recently returned from Iraq, organized the event. "While the nation focuses on the Wall Street bailout and the elections, we need to remember that there is still a war going on," says Bernard.

Proceeds from the event will go towards purchasing a billboard on I-10 to call for an end to the Iraq War.

Sweet Lorraine's Jazz Club, 1931 St. Claude Ave., 945-9654, 7-9 p.m.
