Four bands to play Katrina benefit

JUNEAU - At least four bands will play the Bayou Benefit Bash, an all-night blowout party at Marlintini's to bring aid to those affected by Hurricane Katrina.

The evening begins at 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10. So far, the lineup includes The Bastards, No Drama, Moses Kane and Zuya Chante, a reggae band that has recently moved to Juneau. More bands may join the bill by Saturday night.

Admission is $10, or pay-as-you-can with a $5 minimum.

All door proceeds and a percentage of the bar will go the American Red Cross for the hurricane victims.

Kalen's work on display at KTOO

JUNEAU - The paintings and photographs of longtime Skagway resident Barbara Kalen are on display at KTOO until Sept. 22.

The collection features scenes from in and around Skagway.

The works are on display until Sept. 22 and can be viewed during normal business hours at the station, 360 Egan Drive.

Brown to present magic show about time

JUNEAU - Juneau magician Jeff Brown will present "Chronos," a magic show about time, at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, at Resurrection Lutheran Church.

The show will include insights on how different cultures deal with time, information about clocks, pendulums and stopwatches and an assortment of magic tricks.

Brown came up with the idea a year ago.

Admission is $5, plus a can of food for the Juneau food bank.

"I just like time in general and it definitely has fascinating stories related to it," Brown said.

"I wanted to do a magic presentation that wasn't just a kids show where I make them laugh. There are a lot of tricks that inspire adults to wonder and adults certainly need to wonder."
