New Orleans musicians are joining relief efforts with a series of benefit concerts following Louisiana's devastating August floods.

At 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24 at Gasa Gasa, guitarist Colin Lake shares a bill with rock band The Breton Sound, surfy garage pop band Midriff and Hurricane Max for a benefit for schools and staff impacted by the floods. All proceeds benefit the Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door (or $15 with a donation of school supplies).

And at 7 p.m. Aug. 24 at Republic, New Orleans rapper Curren$y headlines the bill for "Flood The Love" with PJ Morton, Brass-A-Holics and Ambre Perkins. The event is co-hosted by the United Way of Southest Louisiana. Tickets are $20.

On Sept. 10 at The Howlin' Wolf, the "From NOLA With Love" concert benefiting families impacted by the flood as well as Second Harvest Food Bank features James Andrews,  Derrick Freeman, Boukou Groove, Honey Island Swamp Band, King James & the Special Men, Darcy Malone, Khris Royal and others. Tickets are $25.
