Nada Surf (acoustic), Dean & Britta, Richard Buckner, Sam Champion, Scott Matthew, Tara Angell & David Poe, Simone White and Frank Bango himself performed at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Tuesday night in order to raise money for Frank Bango.

Bango, who has just completed nearly two years of cancer treatments, is incredibly grateful for the generosity of The Bowery and his friends. The Bowery Ballroom has been Frank's home as a bartender, bar manager, musician and fan for almost ten years.
The show started at 8 and ran until around 1 am, More pictures below....

In other news, Frank Bango just released "The Sweet Songs of Decay", his latest full-length, which was recorded mostly in New York at Jack McKeever's Maid's Room Studio and in Frank's NYC apartment, as well as in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Bango produced the record with help from numerous friends and allies including Sean Eden (Luna), Steve Calhoon (Pretendo, Skeleton Key, Vic Chesnutt, Daniel Johnston), Jane Scarpantoni, Joan Wasser, Graham Maby (Joe Jackson), Jeremy Chatsky, and Bango's longtime band The Magic Fingers. The record was mixed by Pete Min and Ed Stasium (Talking Heads, The Ramones, The Smithereens, among countless others).

Luna played 23 Minutes in Brussels and Bonnie and Clyde.

The girl with Sam Champion served me a beer earlier in the night.

I meant Dean and Britta played those songs, though it was sort of like Luna, as the other guitarist from Luna, who was playing with Bango, joined them.

I need a BRITTA FILTER.

Daniel pulled a tendon in his knee. He won't be on the upcoming tour because of it, but Jose from the band Ozma will be filling in on bass. The band is okay.

This was an awesome night. Bango sounded great!

Great way to support him and feed your head is to pick up one of his great albums. He is a SUPERB songwriter -- great words, excellent melodies, uncanny pop sense, well-crafted records, like that.

Collect 'em all! The new one is here:

Duh, 15 to 25 year old sexual comment posted here. White children with no respect for women or each other. Sad.

Geneology question. I had a Great-Uncle Frank and Aunt Mary Bango who lived I believe in Brooklyn. My Grandfather was Salvatore Bango. Are we related? Mary from Pittsburgh
