I’m sure you’ve already heard, but Big Sugar are paying tribute to their long-time bassist GARRY LOWE with a benefit concert on December 28 at Danforth Music Hall featuring Barenaked Ladies, Bedouin Soundclash, Broken Social Scene, Culture Shock, Danko Jones, Dream Warriors, Maestro Fresh Wes, Human Rights, I Mother Earth, Isax Injah, Julian Taylor, Lazo, Leroy Sibbles, Mojah, Adrian Sheriff Miller, The New Deal, Tom Wilson, Wide Mouth Mason, Willi Williams, and many more. All proceeds are going to Garry’s family to help with the financial costs of his passing on July 7.

Each of the artists are going to be doing a Big Sugar song, and this is going to be a show to end all shows in 2018. Let me know if you’re able to do a phoner with Gordie Johnson to advance the gig, and let me know if you need anything else!
