NYC: Antibalas, Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew & Prince Paul at Scotty Hard Benefit
This Saturday Brooklyn Bowl will host Music Frees All Festival for Scotty Hard, a benefit show featuring BK afrobeat-ers Antibalas, Sierra Leone's own Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew, OG producer Prince Paul (Gravediggaz/Handsome Boy Modeling School) and plenty more. All profits will go to producer/engineer Scotty Hard— see a list of his extensive and impressive music work. The cause:
On February 16, 2008, as Scotty was leaving a late night session at his Brooklyn studio, a stolen car broadsided the taxi he was traveling in, paralyzing him below the chest, sending him into complicated spinal reconstruction surgery and hospitalization. To friends and admirers alike, Scotty is a true inspiration, and indeed, his spirits remain high. With his positive outlook on life and sense of humor fully in tact, he has made great progress. But there remains a long road ahead, and Scotty Hard continues to need our support.
