I haven't heard anything about a benefit concert yet but as soon as I do, you'll know about it. Like many people, I was shocked and saddened by the news of the I-35W bridge collapse. Though I currently reside in Chicago, I went to school at St. Olaf College (about 45 minutes southeast of the cities) and have driven across that bridge countless number of times to visit friends, music venues, museams, etc, without even thinking about it. Because I have so many friends in the area, the Twin Cities have always felt like a second home for me. And to hear about something like this makes my heart break. I hope everyone is safe and sound and ok.

Chicago's thoughts and prayers are going out to Minneapolis today.
