This Sunday- A Charity Benefit for Lucas Gorham! (Free Press Weekend Pick!)
Lucas Gorham, a master musician and songwriter, and total badass on the lapsteel guitar, of the band Grandfather Child, recently suffered from an intense bike accident, which left him with a broken collar bone and some serious expenses. Well, lucky for him, he has a Hell of a lot of cool, kick ass friends and fans, who want nothing more than to help put him right back on the horse. This event is going to be lined to the gills with great musicians and even greater performances, but that’s not all! There will be a raffle going on, drink specials (like $2 Lone Star and Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka), and more.
Black Congress (an electronics set)
Will Van Horn (Robert Ellis)
Sergio Trevino (Buxton)
Taylor Lee (Finnegan, The Wandering Buffaleros)
Kelly Doyle Trio (Robert Ellis)
…and more, no doubt!
Tickets, or donations, start at a minimum of $10. There is no maximum donation, so feel free to help Mr. Gorham get back in the saddle again, to the best of your abilities!
