Well, the lovely folks over at Roberta’s are throwing a benefit party this Sunday (8-1, rain or shine) to raise money and awareness for the JMML Foundation with the sounds of our favorite New Wavers — The Cure. Hence, the pun intended. We’ve been promised “cheap beer, sangria, delicious BBQ, beer funnels, and a bunch of shirtless men and women” as well as renditions of “Pictures of Me” and “Boys Don’t Cry” by several awesome local bands — Haute Piss, The Tippy Tops, Alex Drewchin, The Naked Heroes, and Glazz.tv.
There’s a $5-10 suggested donation to raise money for Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia (JMML)– a serious chronic leukemia that affects children mostly aged 4 and under. JMML’s mission is to improve the quality of life of JMML patients and families through research, education, advocacy, and charity. Or, you can be a horrible person and donate nothing while enjoying all of the above, along with food from Pies ‘n Thighs, Heritage Foods, and the culinary masters of Roberta’s. Your call, buddy.
We’ll be there, since the whole Ted Leo at Brooklyn Bowl thing is likely to be a shit show.
