The Red Devil Lounge is hosting a benefit show for Paul Williams, this Sunday June 28th.

OK, I hear you. You’re asking, “Who is Paul Williams?” and “Why would I go to a benefit show?”

Paul was the founder of Crawdaddy Magazine, and has likely seen more amazing shows, met more interesting people, and written 20 more books that any of us ever will.

So again, you ask, “Why would I want to benefit a guy who seems to have picked the world of its tastiest fruit?”

Well, Paul was in a terrible bike accident in 1995 that left him with serious brain injury and resulting dementia. He’s thankfully still alive, but the cost of care is sky high.

Sunday’s benefit show will donate 100% of the proceeds to his family, and features performances by Mark Eitzel, former Dead Kennedys front man Jello Biafra, and Mojo Nixon. The show will be hosted by rock journalist Ben Fong-Torres.

Sunday June 28th, $20. Doors @ 8pm. More info at
