Last week, it was announced that a benefit concert was going to take place this Friday, March 25th for NOLA guitarist Eric Lindell and his family at Brooklyn’s The Hall at MP. We recently learned that the Lindell family suffered some heartache, when their infant son was immediately put on life support following his birth, and doctors discovering that his wife, Sarah, had a heart condition. The family is currently dealing with everything the best they can, and we, the music community, are attempting to help the best we can.Musicians Form Benefit Concert To Help NOLA Great Eric LindellAdditional special guests for the performance were confirmed today, including Ween/Joe Russo’s Almost Dead bassist Dave Dreiwitz and his cohort Marco Benevento, along with members of Bonerama and guitarist Seth Walker.The benefit will take place this Friday, acting as a late-night for the sold out Joe Russo’s Almost Dead show at Brooklyn Bowl.
