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….
