This is yet another awful example of the dangers Chicago holds for all who work and play in the early morning hours—musicians without health insurance in particular—but the local music community is once again pulling together to help one of its own weather a tragedy.
"Nobody's got a lot of money right now, but everybody wants to help," says Miller. On Tuesday night from 9 PM till 2 AM, Delilah's will hold a silent auction to raise funds for Larsen—not only does he have those medical bills to deal with, but he'll be unable to work for the next three months.
Lots of local businesses have contributed items to be auctioned off, among them Strange Cargo, Kuma's Corner, Family Tattoo, Mystery Street Recording Company, Bottom Lounge, the Seven Ten Lounge, Easy Rider Bike Shop, Bell's Brewery, and of course Delilah's.
