Freweini Gebremicael Benefit

A quick reminder here. Boots has pooled his vast resources of talent in Nashville and is putting together one hell of a benefit show. We talked briefly on Monday, and he let me know that I should go ahead and put out the good word. Releases are going out to the press as we speak (read).

For those just joining us, Freweini Gebremicael — Winnie — worked downtown in Nashville, and was known and loved by many. She was, sadly, brutally murdered several weeks ago, leaving her family, including her daugher, Rutta, and son, Yonas Simon. Windows on the Cumberland will be playing host to a benefit show, the proceeds of which will all be donated to Winnie’s family. Other vendors around downtown will be participating in various ways as well.

Please come. Have a good time. Have some beers, and listen to some good music. Please don’t let a stupid, idiotic, cowardly act of violence tear apart a community, much less a family. Come honor and aid the memory of a wonderful person.

Monday, June 5th, Windows on the Cumberland, 6PM till “????”

UPDATE: Boots has a notice up, and a list of artists that will be playing:

Agabus, aka:Rudie, Betty Dylan, Corleone, Curt Binkley, The Loft, Levi Gunn, H-Beam, Hurricane Doyle, Kyle Blankenship, Nashville Jazz Trio, Secret Gossip, Steve Benoit, Rick Trace, Matt Bridges, and many more.

aka: Rudie is a Nashville institution — if you’ve never seen them, you should come on out. They are a ton of fun.
