Nightclub fire benefit concert DVD released

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ Local bands gathered Wednesday to help release a DVD concert film designed to benefit victims of a deadly nightclub fire.

The DVD, titled "A Call for Action," features footage from three benefit concerts that local musicians held after the Feb. 20 fire at The Station nightclub.

The West Warwick blaze was sparked by a band�s pyrotechnic display. It killed 100 people and injured nearly 200 others.

Providence filmmakers Tom Davies and Stephen Taylor taped the concerts for posterity, but later realized they had captured something special.

"It became apparent that what we had filmed over three nights was a true picture of the power of the local music scene," said Davies. "In one weekend these musicians reminded us that live music also had the power to heal."

Admission to Wednesday�s DVD release party was $10 to cover costs related to the party and the DVD�s production, Davies said. The DVD was $20, and all of that money would go to The Station Fire Relief Fund.

The one-hour DVD includes behind-the-scenes footage of the concerts at two downtown nightclubs, The Call and The Century Lounge.

A compact disc of the concerts was included with the purchase of the DVD.

The release party was held at Lupo�s Heartbreak Hotel. Reggae band the Psycads kicked-off the night of music. Jon Tierney and The Truth, Fungus Amungus, Ricky Valente and Mr. Lincoln also performed.
