Remember the bad ass two night benefit show I mentioned a couple weeks ago, headlined by members of the Pixies, Michael Penn, Flea, Tim & Eric, and more?
Well, it just got a whole lot badder asser.
Now added to Tuesday, December 8th rock lineup: Tenacious D, members of OK GO, and The Muff’s Kim Shattuck.
And some inside bits on the evening’s set list: “Weird Al will be performing ‘I Bleed’ from (the Pixies album) “Doolittle” with member of the Pixies and Flea on bass. David and Kevin from Love & Rockets will perform ‘All In My Mind’ with Black Francis (as featured on the recent Love & Rockets tribute album).”
To repeat, all male members of the Pixies (Black Francis, Dave Lovering, Joey Santiago), Tenacious D (Jack Black and Kyle Gass), Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Love & Rockets, She Wants Revenge, Weird Al Yankovic, and Grand Duchy (Black Francis and Violet Clark), all on one stage, December 8th, 7pm… for only $20!
And for $35, get the above AND the following night of comedy on December 9th at 7pm (or $20 separately): Tim and Eric (music set), Bob Odenkirk, Brian Posehn, and Dave Lovering (drummer of the Pixies performing his mad science teacher magic act).
The whole thing is a benefit for the family of 8 1/2 month old Winston Bertrand, who was born with Lymphatic and Venous Malformations, two rare, life threatening conditions requiring the constant care of his parents and a heavy financial toll.
Violet Clark, wife of Black Francis as well as his Grand Duchy collaborator, established Winston’s Village to assist the Bertrand family with aid for the lil chap. (You can also catch Grand Duchy one night before the benefit as a special guest at the Mere Mortals show at Spaceland on Monday, December 7th, kicking off the Mere Mortals monthlong residency there.)
