Benefit Show for Everymen's Cowboy on February 4 at Propaganda

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
