‘The good news is we’re far away from those crazy flood waters,’ Billy Gibbons says. You can almost hear him shaking his head. The singer-guitarist, one third of ZZ Top, is one of Houston’s most beloved musicians, but he hasn’t been home since Hurricane Harvey displaced 30,000 of the city’s residents. That will change on September 10th, when his band returns to nearby Sugar Land for a previously scheduled concert at the Smart Financial Centre. The show has become an impromptu fundraiser: ZZ Top are working with the venue to donate $100,000 from the show to assist flood relief.” (Via Rolling Stone.)
