Tonight's show at COCO 66 is a benefit for Yuko Sueta.
Yuko Sueta is a beautiful and gifted video artist, photographer, and writer. Yuko, age 36, is battling metastasized breast cancer. She currently has an intense pain condition as a result of spinal compression that has her bed-ridden and unable to work. She has undergone procedures to try to alleviate some of the compression and she is fighting hard to rebuild her strength.APOLLO HEIGHTS, NYMPH, and KAYO DOT are playing the show.
We hope you will join us in our efforts to support our friend and provide her with an environment which can allow her to continue to be productive, creative and pursue wellness.
I always confuse the existence of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (from Missouri) with Margot and The Nuclear So & So's (from Indiana) - just based on their huge, confusing names (and other somewhat similar characteristics). Tonight the two bands both play in NYC.
Drew Danburry (from Utah) opens the Mercury Lounge show.
Pattern is Movement covered Beyonce for Daytrotter.
