All the information about the benefit and the lawsuit can be found at this very informative announcement so I won't reiterate any of that information. I'm not feeling like doing a full write up; maybe others can post some thoughts. I think a good time was had by all, despite the warm temperatures inside Beulahland. A good amount of money was raised to support the efforts of those engaged in these lawsuits against the city. The A22 video was played before the show and the Day X video was played during Riot Cop's set (which provided appropriate visuals). Alan Graf spoke and gave an update on the lawsuits where he stressed that things were proceeding (including his office getting some documents from the city and the police) but that the lawsuits would be a slow process and would take time. The 3 bands, Digital Knife, The Del Toros, and Riot Cop had great sets and seemed to have a good time. I took a few pictures and thought I would post a handful of them here. Enjoy.
