So Easy Street Piano Bar is in dire need of some funds (I think the taxman has come a knocking) and will be having an impromptu benefit Tonight from 7:3-ish - ? to try and raise $3,000K to keep the doors open.
Personally, for all its cons, Easy Street has become one of the only alternative performance spaces for local and regional acts and the home of Red Octopus Theater Co., one of the oldest sketch comedy groups in the nation, as well as supporting various causes with benefits, etc. So I'll be there to throw in some dough and see if they can ever get the thing to stand on it's own two feet.
If you'd like to see Easy Street stay open, head on down tonight and give a little.
