Unfortunately I didn't get this up in time to inform everyone of advance tickets, but regular tickets for HBO's Treme Presents: My Darlin' New Orleans are still available. They're also accepting donations if you can't make it to the event. Proceeds support Sweet Home New Orleans, Roots of Music, and New Orleans Musician's Clinic . My personal opinion is that it's fan-freakin-tastic that this show brings big Hollywood clout to supporting the local community in which it films. YMMV.
