Benefit at JJ’s helps two DJs get the music back
It’s hard enough being a musical performer. The pay is low, the costs are high. Passion for what you do and the love of an audience is what makes it worthwhile. It’s an uphill battle from the very start so it is particularly devastating (and frequently career ending) when thieves crawl out of the woodwork to rob you of your livelihood.
Two local DJs, Sean Mason of Noted and Ben Park of Bataille were victims of a home invasion last week in which criminals ransacked their homes, taking everything of value, including mixers, turntables and sound reinforcement equipment.
Fortunately our local music community takes care of its own. A benefit is scheduled at JJ’s Bohemia this Friday, Feb. 6 at JJ’s Bohemia. The show starts at 9 p.m. and will feature the talents of Danimal Planet, The Sables, Gruv, Common Criminal, BridegBurnerClub, Churrin and Lord F3ydR. Organizers are asking for a suggested donation of $7.
