So, on Saturday I attended the Gary Miller aka Dr. Know, (Bad Brains) benefit show at Tompkins Square Park in NYC. I met up with two buddies, Chris and Joe. Joe is part of Maximum Penalty, one of the bands that would be performing along with Breakdown, Cro-Mags, Token Entry & Antidote. Each band definitely did their thing and showed why they're a staple in the New York City hardcore scene.
This benefit show was to help Mr. Gary Miller a bit with the expenses that had tallied up from a cardiac arrest last November that quickly progressed to organ failure. He was put on life support and was told he had a 5% chance to live. 3 months were spent in the hospital then off to physical therapy which he's making progress every day.
