As you probably know by now, Levon Helm, the famed drummer for The Band, passed away on April 19th after a battle with cancer. The world lost a great musician and, by all accounts, a wonderful man that day. On Tuesday, June 12th, there will be a Levon Helm Tribute Night at World Cafe Live, featuring many of the best artists in Philly. Here’s the list of confirmed performers, with more to be announced:
Eric Slick (of Dr. Dog) and friends
Kalob Griffin Band
Up the Chain
Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 on the day of the show; a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Levon Helm Studios. Tickets and more information can be found here.
