This is a past event.

Benefit for Harry Strong: The Lovesores, Wizard Rifle, Land Between the Lakes, The Decliners, Shannon Tower, DJ Hwy 7, Amanda Arnold 

When: Fri., Aug. 24, 8 p.m. 2012
On July 19, Harry Strong (age: five) and his sister (age: 18 months) were playing on the sidewalk at SE 72nd and Flavel when a car came up on the curb and hit them. Harry suffered a very serious brain injury, but the good news is that he is out of ICU and now at Randall Children's Hospital in the process of making a slow recovery. A number of local bands have joined together to play a benefit show to help Harry's family with his substantial medical expenses; stand-up comedy and a silent auction are also scheduled. With punk revivalists the Lovesores, howling firebrand psych from Wizard Rifle, and a stacked bill of other fine acts, this will not only be a terrific evening out—it's just about as good a cause as exists on Earth.
