Gary Schepers is an old-school Chicago soundman and musician who’s been hospitalized due to complications from diabetes. I’ll be playing at one of MANY benefits for him, on a bill with Califone and Chris Mills at the Hideout. Doors are at 8pm and tickets are $20 — all proceeds go directly to Gary and boy howdy, he really needs it now. There’s more info about him and all the benefits that are coming together over here. Please come out to one of them and show your love… whether you know him or not, this is a person who’s helped a great many of us Chicago musicians get to where we are today.

Laura Park, the amazing artist who did the drawings & lettering for my new album, put together this benefit to raise a little money for her coworkers at her day job — the company is based in New Orleans, all those workers had to evacuate. So this money is going towards helping those particular people until they can return to their jobs in NO.
