Peter Case and me a few years ago at The Paramount in Santa Fe, NM
Good ol' Stan Ridgway sent out this e-mail alert about a series of benefit concerts for Peter Case, who faces enormous medical bills following open heart surgery in January.

This weekend I'll be joining up with Dave Alvin, Loudon Wainwright III, T-Bone Burnett, Van Dyke Parks, Amy Farris, The Dark Bob, and a host of other friends and art - kooks at McCabe's in Santa Monica CA for some great shows in aid of our friend, musician and songwriter Peter Case in helping handle some insanely high medical bills. Mr. Case is back on the road to recovery! And these shows will help - but you can now help too! - from wherever you are in this crazy round ridiculous world.

The concerts are this weekend at McCabe's In Santa Monica, Friday (ooops, too late!), Saturday and Sunday.

Friends of Case's have set up the Hidden Love Foundation, which is collecting money to help with expenses. If you're in the area, go to one of the shows. If not, check out Hidden Love and if you can contribute, do.
