Mark Your Calendars: Nowhere Man & Whiskey Girl Benefit/Remembrance Set for December 6

Posted By on Mon, Aug 25, 2014 at 11:02 AM


Yes, it's still August, so planning ahead for an event in December takes a level of mental focus I'm personally not capable of, but the lineup for the second annual "Celebration of the Lives, Loves and Music of Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl" is starting to form and it already looks like a can't miss occasion.

Set for Saturday, December 6, this year, the event (which raised $4000 last year for the Lupus Foundation of Southern Arizona) will be held at both Cafe Passe (from 6 to 9 pm, with the more singer-songwritery acts) and at the Flycatcher (from 8:30 p.m. to close, for the bands and such), with tickets set for $7 for admission to one venue or a $10 wristband to get into both. Already Jimmy Eat World's Jim Adkins is on board, as well as fellow Phoenix acts Dry River Yacht Club and Lonna Beth Kelly, joining Tucson acts Carlos Arzate, Sorry About the Garden, Keli and the Big Dream, Sweet Ghosts and a bunch more. It's all for a great cause and a wonderful opportunity to remember two people who gave a lot of themselves to audiences all over the state.

More info on the shows available on Facebook, including updates on the lineup and a silent auction.
