This weather gives everyone the blues, no foolin'. But imagine if your address was outdoors. The Son House Club of Rochester has gotten together with an all-day event to benefit The Open Door Mission and the Catholic Family Center of Rochester. There'll be a slide guitar and harmonica clinic as well as sets from anyone who's anyone playing the blues here in town, including Andrew Cohen, Joe Beard, and Steve Lyons.
Cool Blues for the Homeless VIII takes place Sunday, March 8, at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. (music starts at 4 p.m.). Donations suggested. lovincup.com.
