CANTRELL, FARRELL, MORELLO To Perform At NYC Fundraiser; More Information Available

Punk rock pioneer and activist Wayne Kramer of MC5 fame will be honored in a fundraising performance event on Friday, May 1 at the Nokia Theater in Times Square. This special event carries a low ticket price of $25, and will feature very special guests including Iggy Pop, Tom Morello, Etty Farrell and Perry Farrell, Don Was, Jerry Cantrell, Billy Bragg, Handsome Dick Manitoba, Gilby Clarke, Bun E. Carlos, Boots Riley, Evan Seinfeld and more surprise guests with a low $25 ticket price. With early performances by Joan as Police Woman, Miggs, Ours, Crazy James. Hosted by Matt Pinfield.

Performing songs together and individually from their respective catalogs, as well as collaborating on MC5 songs and anything else that strikes their fancy, this is sure to be an exciting evening of high-energy high-voltage rock and roll. "It's going to be just loose enough musically that anything might happen," jokes Kramer. "The only thing you'll need in order to be in the audience is an open mind... and maybe a set of ear plugs."

One hundred percent (100%) of the money raised on May 1 will go directly to support the treatment of children and young adults who suffer from adversities such as addiction, physical and sexual abuse and chronic illness.

The resilient, irreverent, rapier-witted, amplifier-burning Wayne Kramer is in full effect today and relevant, at peace with himself, at least most of the time. "I lost everything to addiction. I also forfeited my freedom to it," Kramer says. "I'm at ease in the knowledge that my darkest days are now gifts to share with others who travel down the same road."
