Concert Gallery: SafetySuit at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium in Lowell, MA

Filed under Latest Photo Galleries

Nashville’s own SafetySuit is warming up the stage for Daughtry on their current tour run and in the case of their recent stop in Lowell, MA at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, they left the stage in flames.

Proving that they are headlining contenders of their own, SafetySuit’s set was full of songs from their latest disc These Times including the title track and “Let Go.”  Towards the end of the set the band delivered a moving rendition of the Leonard Cohen classic “Hallelujah”.

If you’ve never seen SafetySuit, you’re missing out so heed our advice and get their early!

Jesse Malin, Marah + More to Perform at Benefit for Lucinda’s Kids on April 29+30 in NYC

April 25, 2012 by  
Filed under Daily Music News, Tour Dates & News

On April 29 and 30 a very special collection of musicians will come together to perform at the Bowery Electric in NYC, NY for a benefit. Check out all the details below and if you can’t make the show, you can also participate in auctions and special raffles or donate directly here.

Last December, our close community of friends, musicians, and music lovers lost one of its own when Lucinda Gallagher took her own life. Lucinda was kind and generous, and would give anything she had to anyone in need. She loved music, her friends and family, but more than anything in this world, her two amazing children. The children, now in the care of Lucinda’s dear friend Jamie, both have their mother’s rock and roll spirit. Like her, they are bright and soulful, and have a deep appreciation for music. Young teenagers, both are gifted budding musicians.

This benefit will include live shows on April 29th and 30th at the Bowery Electric, as well as an auction and raffle that will raise money to be put in trust for Lucinda’s children. All artists and persons involved have generously donated their time and talents, as well as items for auction and raffle. With the advisement of Bob Benjamin of the Light of Day charity and Alan Ross of Samaritans, we will ensure that almost all of the proceeds are placed into a trust for the children, with the only exception being a smaller portion being donated to our friends at Samaritans Of New York, who operate NYC’s 24 hour suicide prevention hotline, public education and suicide survivor support services. They are in turn providing support and aid in operating our benefit concert/auction and raffle.
