If you are in the neighborhood of Brooklyn next weekend, April 29, there will be a benefit for The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and The Ponderosa Stomp Foundation—as a special memorial celebration for Norton Records’ mighty Billy Miller who, you will recall, passed away in November last year following a battle with multiple myeloma, along with kidney failure and diabetes.
Billy was loved far and wide within the record collector and indie music scenes—he was an inspiration for yours truly and everyone here at BLURT—so it should be an appropriate celebration a that, with the stage of the Williamsburg Music Hall literally bursting at the seams with artists Billy loved:
The 5, 6, 7, 8’s
Daddy Long Legs
Miriam & Nobody’s Babies
The Condo Fucks
Mick Collins (Dirtbombs/Gories)
The Great Gaylord
Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group)
Roy Loney (Flamin’ Groovies)
Andy Shernoff (The Dictators)
Peter Zaremba (The Fleshtones)
