Townes Van Zandt tribute and KDHX benefit in March
Had he lived to see it, March 7, 2009 would have been Townes Van Zandt‘s 65th birthday. I doubt he would have retired. The legendary Texas troubadour rivaled Dylan for road fever — and rivaled him in song as well.
More details as they emerge, but mark your calendars for an all-star Townes Van Zandt tribute and birthday party at Off Broadway on March 7, 2009. Confirmed performers include: the Brothers Lazaroff, Chris Johnson, the Dive Poets, Ben Bedford, the Poorhouse Says, May Day Orchestra, Auset, Corey Saathoff and Theodore. All proceeds will benefit your community radio station, KDHX.
