No, Runaway Joan Jett was not there last night, but original Runaway Kari Krome was and she was spinning some rock n glam n punk music helping out the Katrina-displaced musicians get back on their feet at the rockin benefit at Brooklyn's Magnetic Field. I didn't take any pictures because I was one of the organizers and hustled raffle tickets, pushed bake sale items and generally ran around "working."
However, I am proud to report that the punk and garage rock community did raise a serious amount of dough for their Southern-based friends and as they say, "the check is in the mail."
Thanks to everyone who played and DJ'd: The A Bones, Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, The Insomniacs, The Spittoons, Kari Krome, Toddophonic Todd, Tom Dash, The Great Gaylord, Tim Warren, Josh Styles, Mike Sansone, The Thing With Two Heads, Dave the Spazz, and birthday boy, Paddy Bullocks.
My oldest friend in the world, Kid Congo:
