Sweet Relief is an organization that offers assistance to musicians without health care plans. Since most are independent contractors and their labels don’t offer them HMO’s they’re on their own to carry coverage- ObamaCare or not. Sweet Relief is not only for healthcare but for any needs artists may have that they cannot meet financially including age related issues. It’ a great organization managed well and the beneficiary of both the New York and San Francisco Dylan Fests coming up next month.
The New York festivities are scheduled Nov. 11-12 at the Bowery Ballroom. The lineup features The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, Doyle Bramhell II, Jason Isbell, Dhani Harrison, Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards, Elvis Perkins, Ruby Amanfu, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn and Tad Kubler, Jesse Malin, Grouplove, Danny Clinch, Matt Sweeney, Amanda Shires, Chase Cohl, Jack Dishel of Only Son and more. Select acts are only playing Nov. 12.
The left side of the country has their first go at festing and Dylan Fest San Francisco is set for Nov. 20 at the Great American Music Hall with a lineup made up of Doyle Bramhall II, Sly and The Family Stone’s Cynthia Robinson and Jerry Martini, Heartless Bastards’ Erika Wennerstrom, Elvis Perkins, Ruby Amanfu, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn and Tad Kubler, Midlake’s Eric Pulido, Chuck Prophet, Nicki Bluhm, Boots Riley and more.
Seriously, New York got the better of the two…Jesse Malin? Tickets are on sale now and for thirty bucks you get two nights of fun. http://www.thebestfest.com/
