>Benefit for Tuli Kupferberg January 22

For those of you in the NYC area, we’ve got an amazing lineup of talent coming out to support Tuli Kupferberg.

January 22, 7:30pm,
St. Ann’s Warehouse, 38 Water St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Sonic Youth
Jeff Lewis
Lou Reed
John Zorn Trio
The Fugs
Produced by Hal Willner

Kupferberg suffered two strokes in April and September 2009 which left him virtually blind, confined to his apartment and in need of 24-hour care. He is recovering well—he is able to speak clearly—but has overwhelming medical ($3,500 a month!) expenses not covered by Medicare or the very modest publishing/royalties income he earns at the age of 86. A number of his friends and admirers are coming to his aid by performing in a benefit concert produced by Hal Willner, including his fellow Fugs, Jeff Lewis, John Kruth and an all-star band, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, Pete Stampfel, John Zorn and others who will be announced soon.
