Down, Dirty, helpful
Just like everyone else, the guys in Dirty Murphy have been pretty shaken by recent events. And, as can be expected, they've decided to deal with their feelings through music. Dirty Murphy, along with Dean Bell and No U Turn, perform at 8 p.m. today in the Central Park Grill. The $5 minimum door fee will be donated to the Spirit of Western New York Fund to benefit the families of rescue workers lost in the Sept. 11 tragedies. "There are so many scary things going on right now we really felt like we needed to do something. We figured the best thing was to bring people together to have some fun and do something to help care for others at the same time," said Dirty Murphy's Tony Visco. CPG is located at 2519 Main St.
