Griffin Rodriguez Benefit
Griffin Rodriguez Benefit
Constellation to Host Benefit Weekend for Griffin Rodriguez 8/10 & 8/11

Renowned sound engineer, producer, musician & organizer in severe bike accident; suffering brain trauma.

Last week Griffin Rodriguez suffered serious brain trauma and neck injuries in a bike accident. A longtime member of Chicago’s experimental rock and jazz communities as the leader of Icy Demons and member of Bablicon, Rodriguez was also the founder of the South Loop recording collective Shape Shoppe. Rodriguez now resides in L.A.

To help cover his medical costs, estimated at $100,000, Constellation is re-tooling their weekend programming as benefit concerts for Rodriguez.

Close friends of Rodriguez have set up a site for online donations: http://www.gofundme.com/donate4griffin. The money all goes directly to Rodriguez and his wife, Jane Palmer, to help cover the expenses associated with his hospitalization and recovery.

Saturday’s show with guitarist Joe Morris, bassist Joshua Abrams, and reedist David Boykin will get expanded and become a benefit focused on raising funds for Rodriguez. There will be performances by many special guests including The Cairo Gang, Tim Kinsella of Joan of Arc, My Silence (Mike Reed, Nick Butcher with guests Cooper Crain and Tomeka Reid)
