Kevin Wallace has been a fixture in the Atlanta music scene for over 15 years, gracing local stages in a succession of bands including Teen Wheat, Ruvolo, Jupiter Watts, The Goldest, Envie, and others. Many local musicians know Kevin as a co-organizer of the Happenstance holiday show at the Earl, which raised thousands of dollars for charities during the decade that it was an annual event. Kevin also has been an enthusiastic organizer of benefit shows to help other organizations and friends in need. Now Kevin is the one who could greatly benefit from a helping hand. Last year, while riding his bike in Alameda, CA, Kevin was seriously injured in a hit and run collision with an automobile, resulting in severe injuries, including eight broken ribs, a broken clavicle, three spinal fractures, a bruised liver, and a punctured lung. Fortunately, Kevin is doing much better, but following surgeries and a lengthy hospital stay, combined with numerous follow up visits with specialists, Kevin has been strapped with enormous medical bills. As of now, despite having insurance, Kevin owes more than $20,000 for hospital and medical costs. This show is a benefit to help raise money so that Kevin can settle the bills for his treatment - proceeds from the show will go directly to Kevin and will be applied to his unresolved invoices. As a special treat, Kevin will be playing drums in a one-night only reformed version of Jupiter Watts, who will open the night by playing their self-titled third album.

In the event you cannot make the show but want to help Kev out, here is a link to a GoFundMe page his brother Braedan started for him.
