Here’s a great show for a very worthy cause. I’ve taken this post almost verbatim from the Facebook announcement of the show, because it says everything that needs to be said. Playing tonight will be Brandi and the Alexanders, the Pin Ups, Mary Lee Kortes, Eric “Roscoe” Ambel, Gringoman (with special guest drummer Sim Cain), Spanking Charlene, Mike Murray, Briana Davis and special guests.
The reason for this benefit is this: on the 7th of July, Matt and Stacie Polashek, while driving back from a gig at Claudio’s on Long Island, were involved in a tragic accident. Matt was taken to Stoney Brook hospital with multiple injuries. Stacie however, did not survive. Since then the outpouring of love and support has been nothing short of miraculous. Matt is not only a popular local musician and sound tech but also a teacher (as was Stacie) in the New York Public School System. But the accident has left Matt severely injured. And so we come together as a community of artists and educators to come to the aid of this most excellent man and his infant son. Join us at the Cutting Room on Friday, August 30th for an eclectic evening of music that will cut across the very same genres that Matt ‘Tiny’ Polashek made his own. Watch as Po’Boy and Tiny “Get by With a Little Help from Their Friends!” 100% of ticket price and additional donations made, will go directly to Matthew and Po’Boy Polashek.
