Ted Leo flying to Austin to play benefit for Esme

Esme

As previously mentioned, Ted Leo is one of the MANY artists (Allo Darlin included), who have been paying tribute to Esme Barrera this week. And now Austin 360 reports:

Ted Leo will fly in to join the Crack Pipes, the Golden Boys and Grape St. for a benefit show Jan. 28 at Beerland for the fund to defray the costs of services for Esme Barrera, who was killed Jan. 1 while walking home from a show.

No word yet on advance tickets.

Barrera was well-known among her friends as a huge Leo fan. Leo is well-known as a class act. As one friend said on Facebook: “you all should know that Ted Leo actually REQUESTED to play a show for Esme Barrera on the day he found out about the tragedy. Super stand up dude – and I know she would be SO excited.” Indeed.

Ted Leo recently played a New Year’s Eve show in NJ, and one in Brooklyn the night before. A benefit show for Esme is also happening in Brooklyn (though not with Ted on the bill).
