Benefit Gigs for Tara Bosch-Santelices


In trying to raise funds for the medical bills of our friend and fellow musician/artist Tara Bosch-Santelices, we have come up with a series of benefit gigs which are intended to also uplift the morale of Tara and her family. As you might already know, Tara was shot in the head during a violent hold-up incident on the morning of her 23rd birthday last Wednesday, August 6.
