Benefit Print & Concerts for Alan Forbes

On Monday, October 21st, Alan Forbes was attacked in the Lower Haight neighborhood of San Francisco. The attack left him with two skull fractures and damage to his right eye. As do a lot of artists, he has no insurance to cover the growing medical expenses. To help cover the medical expenses there are two benefit shows set up in San Francisco as well as other fundraisers. Each show will have silent auctions.

Current contributors include: Queens of the Stone Age, AFI, Graveyard, Hot Fog, Diesel Fuel Printing, Monolith Press, Bad Skulls, TRPS, and more.

Current artist contributors include: Skinner, Junko Mizuno, Robert Bowen, Decoder Ring Design, Marq Spusta, Mishka Westell, Bobby Dixon, John Howard, Jared Connor, Adam Pobiak, Gary Houston, Viral Graphics, Gregg Gordon, Stainboy, and more.

In addition, Marq Spusta will be creating a benefit poster.

If you would like to donate to the silent auction, please contact:
