From NOLA with Love: Howlin’ Wolf to Host Stacked Concert for Flood Victims

The Howlin’ Wolf in New Orleans will host a jam-packed benefit concert for victims of the widespread floods that devastated much of Louisiana earlier this month. It’s scheduled to kick off at 7pm on Saturday, September 10.

In addition, a currently-unannounced very special guest will be confirmed next week, and more artists may be added to the bill before the show.

A variety of food trucks will also be on site.

There will be a $25 suggested donation at the door. A portion of the proceeds from the show will go directly to families affected by the floods, with the rest of the proceeds going to Second Harvest Food Bank.
