Colleen Malone is a friend of mine and a friend of Chicago's independent music scene. This spring she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and she doesn't have insurance, so friends across the country have been coming up with ways to raise money to help offset her medical expenses. Tomorrow you have the opportunity to help her out in a way that will benefit you as well, assuming you like rock 'n' roll, Kinsella weirdness, and/or snacks.
From the Friends of Colleen blog, a description of the benefit show going down Saturday night:
The excellent lineup is now complete: SLICK CONDITIONS (a new band featuring Elliot Dicks, Leroy Bach, Ryan Rapsys, and Kurt Niesman), HEAD OF SKULLS! (playing new material from their upcoming full-length) and MAKE BELIEVE (sweaty as ever).
All-ages! Baked goods for sale! Posters by Chicago artist & screenprinter Mat Daly available for purchase!
Doors at 9 pm. $10 suggested donation.
The AV-aerie is located at 2000 W. Fulton St. (third floor)
See you there!
