Forget the Grammys: Haiti Benefit Show in 'Cuse Sunday

The Wescott hosts a Haiti benefit show on the day of the Grammys.

If you missed the Haiti benefit show at Funk N' Waffles last night (a likely scenario because the place was absolutely packed), there's still time to support the relief effort and support some local acts.

The Wescott is hosting a Haiti Benefit show beginning at 3 p.m. tomorrow (Sunday, 2/1).  Acts for the afternoon include Joe Driscoll, former SU Lacrosse star Mike Powell, Just Joe, Feeding Affliction, Fazeshift, Ryan Coughlin, Roman Revival, The Score, Juice Break and Animal Pants. The lineup spans everything from Hip Hop to Folk, Funk to Metal so more reason than simply charity to attend. 

If you're worried about missing tomorrow night's big Grammys broadcast, don't be. Fellow Otto-Tune blogger Jett Wells and I have picked the major category winners for you below to eliminate all the suspense (winner will certainly have major bragging rights on the next Otto-Tune podcast).
