Ruthie Morris

When word spread that former Magnapop guitarist Ruthie Morris lost most of her recording equipment and studio space after the recent flooding in Atlanta, her friends and cohorts jumped at the chance to help her out.

According to Ruthie, this flood in her basement was her 'Katrina'. She lost a lot of her musical equipment and recording studio. Jeff and I have known Ruthie for a long time going back to the early 90s. She's good people and when crappy things happen to good people in this city, you do something about it! It was a no brainer really. We looked at each other and knew this show had to come together. I knew bands would jump at the chance to help. Amy Ray got back with me right away. Amy's label Daemon put out the last Magnapop record and thought it would be nice gesture to play and she was there immediately. Warm in the Wakes' singer Chris Rowell has been a fan from back in the day and Tim Lee played in an early version of Magnapop so it's kinda just getting her friends to play and help her get back what she lost. That's it really. - Chris Chandler

Amy Ray, Warm in the Wake and the Tim Lee 3 play a benefit show for Ruthie Morris tonight at The Earl. $12 at the door. 8:30 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Rd. 404-522-3950.
