ATL Concert Roundup — April 8-14

Benefit for Justin Green

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Benefit for Justin Green
w/ Mlny Parsonz, Terminal Slaughter, Order of the Owl
Tuesday, April 9
Basement – 1245 Glenwood Avenue SE in Atlanta 30316
Admission $10 donation

On Saturday, March 16th, Justin Graham, a full-time Georgia State student and newly-divorced father of one, was found lying on the side of the road after finishing his shift at Vortex in Little Five Points. While the details of the accident remain unclear, the severity of the injuries are not. Graham suffered broken ribs, a partially collapsed lung, a broken arm, and, worst of all, a severely damaged spinal cord. He is facing the possibility of permanent paralysis and permanent disability.

Graham is the sole provider for his beautiful two-year-old daughter, Amelia, and, tragically, like so many in the service industry, he has no health insurance. As you might imagine, the bills have been piling up and will only continue to do so as Graham continues his long, arduous rehabilitation. He is unable to work or support his family and things will only grow more difficult as the years pass. As a result, friends and family have taken up his cause. Already, an indiegogo campaign has helped raise nearly $30,000, and on Tuesday night, local artists and businesses will come together at the Basement to host a benefit. In addition to performances from stoner doom trio Order of the Owl and At the Gates cover band Terminal Slaughter, those attending the benefit will be treated to a rare performance from Royal Thunder frontwoman Mlny Parsonz. There will be prizes and games and fun, all in the name of this worthiest of causes.
