Benefit Crush: Calling All Angels featuring Bang Camaro / Sidewalk Driver / Spirit Kid / Stereo Telescope / Lovewhip / Casey Desmond / Gem Club at TT’s on Saturday 12/4 (afternoon show)

November 22, 2010

Whew, that headline was a mouthful. Now, normally we here at BBC wait until a day or two before a show to post about it. But in this case we’re breaking our own rules because this show is very close to our hearts. Over the summer, my longtime friend C.D. (you know him from C.D. On Songs) and his wife Danyelle lost their baby daughter Emilia 13 days after she was born very prematurely. That’s Emilia’s actual footprint in the poster at left. C.D. and Danyelle have since found strength and comfort in giving back to the Beth Israel Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), where Emilia spent her days, via their Friends of Emilia organization. In turn, a handful of Boston musicians have graciously volunteered to help give back to C.D. for all his work as a local music journalist over the years by playing this benefit show to help raise money for the cause. Note that this is an afternoon affair, meaning you can still do whatever it is you might like to do on a Saturday night. AND, did you know that C.D. himself is a talented musician who occasionally plays keyboards with Spirit Kid? He’ll join them for a few numbers at this show, for an extra special treat.

Tickets are $12 and can be purchased via this website set up for the event. Donations can be made here too. At the show, purple Friends of Emilia bracelets will be on sale, as well as special Calling All Angels t-shirts commemorating the event (thanks to our friends at AudioCotton.com!). Proceeds from both will be donated to the cause as well.
