Imagine No Gun Violence Benefit for The Brady Center To Prevent Gun Violence: John Lennon Tribute feat. Dez Dickerson, Chris Scruggs, Alcohol Stunt Band, Bill Lloyd, Matt Friction, Tommy Womack, Kenny Vaughn, The Jack Silverman Ordeal & more 

When: Fri., Dec. 9, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $10
Before the Long Players, Guilty Pleasures or My So-Called Band, there was this star-studded annual benefit for the Brady Center and efforts to promote responsible gun use. For 11 years, it brought out the cream of the city’s club attractions to perform covers by the slain former Beatle — a poignant reminder of how much one gun-toting creep can rob from the world in seconds. After a five-year hiatus, spurred by the guns-in-bars controversy and other grim developments, the benefit resumes with a lineup that’s as stellar as the house band of Dave Paulson, Steve Allen, Craig Krampf, James ‘Hags’ Haggerty, Austin Edwards and Dan Sommers. Featured artists range from Chris Crofton’s Alcohol Stuntband to artist/producer and former Prince guitarist Dez Dickerson, along with Bright Little Field, Jordan Carpenter & Grayson Crouch, Katie Cook & Roger Cook, Jason Eskridge, Rosie Flores, Matt Friction, Tommy Keenum, The Kingston Springs, Carey Kotsionis, Bill Lloyd, The Nobility, Primal Mystery, Chris Scruggs, the Jack Silverman & JD Simo, Allen Thompson Band, Kenny Vaughan and Tommy Womack (whose cathartic reading of “Well Well Well” was a highlight of years past). Admission is $10.
