The Twin Cities music community lost one of their own in Andy Richardson this past September. Now several of his musician friends, including Dillinger Four, have joined together for a benefit show this weekend at Triple Rock.
The remaining members of the Crush, Richardson's anthemic pop-punk group, are also reforming for the evening, and several lineups that might never be seen again are expected. Like the recent benefit auction, which featured items donated by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and the Black Keys, all proceeds are set to benefit Richardson's family.
In addition to being a performer, Richardson was instrumental in keeping other musicians at their best with his work at ZVEX Effects, and his former co-workers remember him fondly.
This night represents a chance to remember one of the things that brought Richardson into so many lives: the music. Donate to his memorial fund here.
A Benefit for the Andy Richardson Memorial Fund. Dillinger Four, Rivethead, the Crush, Song of Zarathustra, the Dirty Hits, and Blackthorne. $15, 18+, 8 p.m., Saturday, November 22 at Triple Rock. Tickets.
