Greg Garcia of the Tractor Tavern just wrote to let us know that the Tractor and Conor Byrne are teaming up to put together a couple benefit shows to raise money for Cafe Racer and the families of yesterday's shooting victims.
The shows will take place Tuesday, June 19th, at both the Tractor Tavern and Conor Byrne and any bands or musicians who are interested in participating can e-mail Greg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another benefit show will happen this Monday, June 4th, at Hale's Palladium. There will be "representatives from Circus Contraption, the Bad Things, Beefcake, the busking community and the circus community across the board." It starts at 7 pm, goes until 11 pm, and admission is by donation. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the families of all victims, as well as the survivor of yesterday's shootings.
My heart feels really heavy today. But to see the community quickly pull together, to help in any way they can, definitely helps a little bit.
