Our pal Josh has to have hip replacement surgery. He will not be able to work. He managed to get on Medicaid but they are only partially paying for the surgery and he is going to end up with a BIG medical bill. He will be out of commission for a while to heal up. Everyone knows a party without Josh is no party at all!!!!!!!! Let's help raise some money to help him out and have a GREAT time doing it!Union Pool is throwing a benefit for Josh Styles of long-running party Smashed!Blocked! this afternoon (6/10) and proceeds will go towards his medical bills. It's a $15 suggested donation, bands start at 4PM and include Philadelphia's The Tough Shits, Ex Humans, Baby Shakes and a "super secret special guest" at 11:30. Jonathan Toubin will spin from 12:30 - 2AM. (Josh spun at his big return gig last month at Brooklyn Bowl.) If you show up just for Toubin's DJ set, it's a $5 donation to get in.
In addition to the bands and DJs, there will be raffles, arts and crafts tables, rummage sales and more. Details (including how to donate if you can't make it today), band schedule, and the flyer are below.
