As many of you know, musician and producer Dan Stock (of the hard rock band, Bruiser) has been a huge force in the Chicago rock scene for the past decade. We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Dan at Uptown Recording Studios last year–he engineered and produced our first EP as a trio. Recently, we were extremely honored to be invited by Dan to play at the first annual “DANSTOCK” at Lincoln Hall (2424 N. Lincoln Ave.) on Thursday, February 7, 2013. Tickets for this event can be purchased for $20 each here. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and bands will start playing at 8:00 p.m.
This concert will be our most important show to date. All proceeds will benefit melanoma research at the Lurie Comprehensive Care Center, where Dan has been receiving medical treatment in connection with his battle with melanoma. According to Dan, he organized this benefit concert to “give a little bit back” while he still can. Please join us at this event to celebrate the life of our dear friend, producer and fellow musician, Dan Stock, and to help raise money in his honor. We’ll be playing with three more great Chicago bands that worked with Dan: Farkus, Nature Show and Carta Marina.
You can read more about the event on Facebook here or in a number of blogs/publications, including The Local Tourist, Uptown Update, Broken Hearted Toy, Illinois Entertainer, DNAinfo, Lincoln Square Patch, Windy City Rock, Curb Service Music, Time Out Chicago, JBTV and the Welles Park Bulldog. If you can’t make it to the show, you can also make a direct donation to the Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at https://www.give-northwestern.org/donate (click on the “Additional Feinberg Designations” drop-down box, and scroll down to melanoma research).
If you didn’t catch our appearance on Mancow’s Morning Show where we promoted this event, check it out on Mancow online or stay tuned for clips to be posted on Facebook and YouTube. It was a riot. Spoiler: Mancow offers to pay for us to get haircuts and asks us to play live for a wrestler and a woman in a full duck costume.
