There's a benefit for Tuli Kupferberg, pacifist anarchist co-founder of The Fugs (click). . It's at the Bowery Poetry Club, 303 Bowery, in the East Village, from 8 - 11pm. Admission is $10.
Tuli is 86(!) now and suffered a stroke and is having problems with his medical insurance company -- big surprise that is. Anyway, it's only $10 bucks for a great cause. David Amram, Penny Arcade, Bob Holman, Peter Stampfel of the Holy Modal Rounders, and many other musicians, poets and performers-- yours truly included -- will be playing, reading and generally entertaining what is shaping up to be a crowd. The hat will be passed so that we can raise as much as possible to help Tuli.
And if you can't make it, you can watch live on the web:
