Any Replacements fans on here? His new CD helps benefit Catholic relief in Haiti.
*PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A year after Tommy Stinson’s online auction raised nearly $50,000 for children ravaged by last year’s earthquake in Haiti, the Replacements bassist is getting ready to help out again.
“One Man Mutiny,” his second solo effort, comes out Aug. 30 on Stinson’s own label, Done to Death Music. He plans to donate half of the proceeds to Timkatec, a nonprofit that houses and educates homeless children in the Port-au-Prince area.
The school, founded in 1994 by a Roman Catholic priest, trains destitute boys to work as plumbers, electricians, tailors, shoemakers and construction workers; its sister school trains teenage girls as cooks, hairdressers, seamstresses and child care workers.*
And according to Timkatec’s web site, they do partner with Catholic Relief Services.**
