From the May 2009 Glover Park Gazette:
Shameless plug department: On Saturday, May 30, Gin & Tonic at 2408 Wisconsin will host Charm Aid 2009, a super-fantastic rock show to benefit St. Luke’s Shelter. The event will feature three bands, including The Charm Offensive, a very famous and successful act whose bass player is your Commercial Strip Confidential correspondent. [The other two acts are Yell County and Kid Goat.] Charm Aid 2009 runs from 7 to 10 p.m. and costs $10, 100% of which will go to support the shelter’s work to help its formerly homeless residents achieve independence.
