[off topic] Kapone plays benefit at Newby's

Memphis rap star/film actor Al Kapone, recently in entertainment headlines for winning top honors, along with Terrence Howard and Niko Lyras, for the song "Hustle & Flow," will appear Friday May 26 at Newby's on Highland. Kapone is performing as part of United Action International's BLEEDING HEARTS benefit concert. The concert will raise money for Sudanese refugees in Africa. Doors open at 9 p.m.; tickets are $10 at the door.

Other scheduled performers:

The Secret Service
Brad Postlewaite of Snowglobe

Funds raised at this event will benefit United Action International's new Operations in Africa. United Action International is a locally based non-profit agency which was responsible for the Band4Sudan Benefit concert last September, a relief effort to aid southern Sudanese refugee camps. United Action International's new operations in Africa will cater to the needs of refugee camps in Northern Kenya and Uganda as well as in Southern Sudan.
