So You Know

As I posted here a little while back, Mike McDonald of Manic Productions died back on Nov. 19. The reason I bring this back up is that Mark at Manic is putting on a benefit show.

One of Mike's favorite artists was Ted Leo, who he booked a few years back (that amazing West Haven show). Mark got in contact with Leo, and the songwriter agreed to do a show at The Space a week from today, Dec. 16, with proceeds going to the charity of the McDonald family's choice.

This is will be a great cause and great music. Make sure to attend. Here's something Mark wrote about the show:

"Mike McDonald was an integral part of Manic Productions, as well as a dear, close friend. In 2004, he booked Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, one of his favorite bands. In memory of Mike and all that he meant to us, we've asked Ted Leo to come back and play a show for Mike ..."
