Tonight at 8:30pm Greg’s band NDY (Not Dead Yet) will be playing at O’Gara’s party room “The Shanty” in St. Paul. The gig will benefit Kòt a Kòt, a non-profit that helps at-risk young women in Haiti, so there’s a suggested donation of $10 at the door.

We thought we would bring this video back for today’s Lighten Up feature because it’s just too good to let it languish in the archives. Oh, and if you’re wondering what Greg was going to say about the Patriot’s Bible, you can find that here.
