A Benefit Concert for School of Seven Bells’ Benjamin Curtis
Exitmusic, Rewards, CREEP, Albert Hammond Jr., Blood Orange and Certain Creature will perform at a benefit concert for School of Seven Bells’ Benjamin Curtis. Curtis, who plays guitar and synths for the group, is currently battling cancer. The benefit show will be jelled at Glasslands in Brooklyn on May 9. Tickets are currently on sale for $12. Hammond, Blood Orange and Certain Creature will offer DJ sets while the rest of the evening’s performers will play full-band sets.
School of Seven Bells have set up a website to raise money to help with Curtis’ mounting medical bills. Bandmate Alejandra Deheza released a statement on Facebook recently that read:
He is responding really well to treatment, and rough as it has been, it’s your messages and posts that have inspired us and keep us focused on the path ahead. Thank you so much to all of you who have been continuously sending love.
