Paul Kamp is a Chicago musician -- he plays guitar in three different bands and bass in R. Buzzy and used to play with Busker Soundcheck. Of course, you can't make a living as a musician, so Paul fixes boats, too. Three weeks ago, a hatch closed on his left index finger. He lost most of the top of the finger. He will play again (this is a man I saw do a show with a theremin because he couldn't play his bass due to a broken arm) but it's going to take time and reconstructive surgery. To raise money for that surgery, a bunch of Paul's musical friends are getting together to "Give Paul Kamp the Finger".
Saturday, September 11th (eek!), 10 pm at Martyrs' (3855 N Lincoln). $15 donation at the door.
The line up so far includes:
Busker Soundcheck members Chris Klein & Dan Sopher with guest guitarists
Dyslexic Apaches (reunion)
Led Zeppelin live experience
The Artist Formally Known As Vince
and as many guests and surprises as time will allow.
Every band will be playing a Busker Soundcheck song in their own style.
If you can't make the show and still want to help out, you can contact Dan Sopher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
