Gary Schepers benefits start tonight

"Sound Check," a concert series to benefit local musician and veteran soundman Gary Schepers starts tonight at both Fitzgerald's and The Abbey. Schepers has been in the hospital since December and was diagnosed with Group A streptococcus, a flesh-eating bacterial infection. As a freelancer without insurance, Schepers now faces medical bills skyrocketing in the six figures, so his friends in the local musical community have gathered to organize a week worth of benefit shows at numerous different venues. Tonight (1/20) at Fitzgerald's, 8pm

Jay Farrar, Robbie Fulks, Corky Siegel, Bakelite 78, Devil in a Woodpile and more.
