Benefit for a Fug



St. Ann's Warehouse is hosting NOTHING, A BENEFIT FOR TULI KUPFERBERG on Friday, Jan. 22. Proceeds from the concert, produced by Hal Willner and featuring The Fugs, John Kruth, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, Elliott Sharp, Pete Stampfel, John Zorn and others, will go to covering medical expenses for the Fugs co-founder, who suffered two strokes last year that have left him blind and in need of 24-hour care. Details here.

Tuli has been contributing his unique cartoons and satirical lyrics to The SHADOW since we began publishing in 1989. He even wrote an article for us about his growing up on the Lower East Side -- though he won't admit it, he's a damn good writer!

Tuli is listed in the phone book, so folks can call or write him. He needs all of the support that we who love him can give him!!
