As discussed, legendary Bad Brains guitarist Dr. Know had a scary bout with cardiac arrest last year. He's thankfully recovering, but there are still a ton of medical bills to be dealt with. In addition to a Gofundme page, which has raised over $60,000 at this point, a benefit show with some good hardcore bands has been announced to provide additional support.

Two NYHC vets, Maximum Penalty and Breakdown, will be playing a benefit in Tompkins Square Park on July 23. More details, such as ticket info and set times and even more bands, are TBA. Stay tuned.

In related news, Dr. Know recently formed the supergroup Saudade with Deftones' Chino Moreno, John Medeski and others.
