A little blues music could help keep valley kids from having the blues for real this Christmas.Dozens of people came out to hear the blues at the 9th annual "rock the lot' concert in North Fresno today.

The cost of admission was an unwrapped toy, donated to the Marines and Toys for Tots. Organizers say it always feels good to help unfortunate families, but it's never been more important than now.

Jim Eachus, the event organizer said, "especially this year with the economy being as down as it is. We need to do everything we can, so we're hoping to fill up that military truck. In years past, we filled up three trucks, but we're hoping to fill up at least one this year."

The bands rocking the lot today included Deja Blues, Monkey Wrench, and A-C Myles.
