Habitat For Humanity Benefit

Takoma Park, Maryland roots-rocker Billy Coulter and his band will host a benefit concert to support Habitat for Humanity’s hurricane recovery effort "Operation Home Delivery" on Saturday, November 19 at the Half Moon BBQ in Silver Spring. The show, which will also feature an acoustic set by the U-Liners, gets started at 9pm. Tickets are $6 or 2-for-$10.

"Operation Home Delivery" will build and deliver houses via Mississippi River barges to the places and the people who need help recovering from hurricane damage on the Gulf Coast. According to this press release on habitat.org: the homes will mirror traditional Habitat homes, simple, decent places to live, providing approximately 1,100 to 1,300 square feet of living space. "These are not mansions by any means," said Jonathan Reckford, Habitat’s chief executive officer, "but to the homeowners, they will be palaces."
