Benefit Show Crush: Music Benefit For Stephen Fredette At The Lizard Lounge Thursday

July 14, 2010

Local rocker Stephen Fredette has been battling lymphoma for the last few years. Though his insurance helps, co-pays and other unexpected fees have added up quickly. Luckily for Stephen, this is Boston and in addition to being the home to several fine hospitals, we take care of our own when we can. Naturally, a benefit concert has been organized for Thursday night at the Lizard Lounge (there have actually been a series of benefits over the last 3 years) with 100% of the money raised at the door to be donated to Stephen, so please come out and support this local musician and the community in general. Eight awesome acts have volunteered their time and talent to help make this night one to remember: The Swinedells with special guests Jen & Becca D’Angora, The Frank Morey Bigger Band, Pony (featuring Stephen himself), Banditas, Eric Martin (of the Illyrians and the Neats), Pine Cone Teeth, The Beat Awfuls, and the New Black Magic Jazz Combo (links and set times below).

Admission is super cheap, only $6 before 9pm and $8 after (and if you print up the facebook event page here you can get in for $6 no matter what time you show up). Additional donations are appreciated and again, every cent goes to one of our own that’s having a tough time. Weeknights are hard, we know, but this is for a good cause so get out there and show some love!
