Not saints, exactly, but still marching in...
Minnesota's Jack Brass Band (myspace) play the Nomad on Saturday before heading down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras (more here), performing in the Krewe du Vieux on February 11. Here's my City Pages profile, with links (and Rick Mason's roundup of Katrina benefit albums).

I don't normally (as in, ever) advertise for the City Pages advertising department, but the Minnesota Music Directory happens to be free if you want to place one basic listing (as a rapper, musician, DJ, web site, journalist, whatever). The deadline for listings is February 10 at 5:00 p.m., so click the above link and place it now. (Reaction threads here, here, here, and here.)
