Everymen's Sergio Witis speaks about Cowboy here.
Word has trickled in that Cowboy, who plays washboard and guitar for local swamp-folk act Everymen, has been hospitalized after a serious fall from a balcony at his home a week ago Sunday.
According to friend Cecil Lunsford, who is hosting a benefit at Propaganda on Friday, Cowboy does not have health insurance, and all donations at the show will go to defray the mounting hospital bills. "It's really, really serious," Lunsford emphasizes. "He's been in a coma for a week." To protect the family's privacy, the name of the hospital has not been released.
So far, the lineup of locals for Friday's show includes Viva Le Vox, Bonnie Riot, the Howling Winds, Heavy Boots, the Shakers, Cop City/Chill Pillars, and Yellow #6. More names are expected to be added soon.
From the event invite:
this show is to show support for
our friend and comrade Cowboy, who is down and out right now, and needs
the support of this community
this show is also for everyone
that is friends with Cowboy that has been bummed for the past week.
Shit's rough, but its ok to still have a good time
money is going to be given to Cowboy's family who are the best qualified
to decide what to do with it. We ask that you please bring cash as it
would just make things easier.
Show for Cowboy. With Viva Le Vox, Bonnie Riot, the Howling Winds, the Shakers, Cop City/Chill Pillars, Heavy Boots, and Yellow #6. 6 p.m. Friday, February 4, at Propaganda, 6 S. J St., Lake Worth. Click here.
