Last March, Hank IV drummer Scott Jones suffered a traumatic brain injury after falling backwards down the stairs in his home. After spending a number of months in a coma and undergoing several surgeries, Jones is now back living at home, where he needs around-the-clock medical care that is not covered by his insurance. To help cover these costs, there's a benefit show this Sunday at Bottom of the Hill, featuring a full afternoon of entertainment for just $15 (100% of which will go to the Scott Jones Medical Fund).
The benefit features performances by Hank IV and fellow locals Hot Lunch and Mitchell & Manley, as well as a set by Brickbat, a post-punk trio that Scott Jones had been in during the late '80s and early '90s. To make the reunion all the more special, original Brickbat members James Sardone and Scott Renner will be joined by David Yow and Mac McNeilly of The Jesus Lizard at the show.
