On Fri. Dec. 10, acclaimed songwriter Ben Bridwell of S.C.-based indie band Band of Horses will present the Benefit for the Andy Kotowicz Family Foundation at the Pour House with musical project Birdsmell and Friends and special guest Holopaw.
A longtime member of the Sub Pop Records family in Seattle, Kotowicz was killed in a car accident in October. His daughter Anna was seriously injured as well (she is recovering nicely). Friends of the Sub Pop and Seattle music community have pitched in to help the family in different ways.
An Andy Kotowicz Family Foundation Benefit Show is scheduled for Sat. Dec. 4 in Seattle at the Showbox at the Market venue with Shabazz Palaces, Vetiver, Fruit Bats, Wolf Eyes, Pissed Jeans, Mudhoney, A Frames/AFCGT, and Michael Yonkers. Additional fund-raisers and online auctions are in the works as well.
Admission is a $25 donation. All proceeds from the Pour House show will benefit the foundation set up for the family. Bridwell welcomes members of Band of Horses and other musical guests to the stage at 8 p.m. Visit bandofhorses.com for more info.
