Continuing on a theme, the lineup for the Burlington installment of Daryl Rabidoux benefits — in addition to the Boston and Providence shows — has just been announced. And it's a good one. Check it out:
8:30 - Zac Clark
9 - Lowell Thompson solo
9:30 - Ryan Power
10 - Swale
10:30 - Neil Cleary
11:30 - The Vanderpolls (formerly The Jazz Guys . . . really)
12 - Brett Hughes (formerly Brett Hughes)
12:30 - Workingman's Army
1 - My Dearest Darling
The show is Friday, July 25 at Club Metronome. $5 — that's the minimum, feel free to donate above and beyond — and proof of legal drinking age gets you in the door. 100% of door proceeds go to Daryl. The one and only Jason Cooley will serve as emcee for the evening and provide between set entertainment, Koolaoke-style.
Kudos to Club Metronome and Max Schwartz (of the Jazz Gu . . .er, Vanderpolls) for pulling this all together. No word yet as to whether Daryl will be in attendance.
On a related note, the early returns from last night's Mikey Dread benny are pretty remarkable. I've received e-mails from a number of folks who've said they couldn't even get in. No word yet on how much much was raised, but that's a pretty good sign. Just a reminder that if you couldn't go — or get in — you can also donate here.
