Its been almost two years since Micheal Larsen – better known by his rap moniker "Eyedea" – passed away, but the pain is still ripe for his family, friends and fans. In honor of Larsen, his mother, Kathy Averill, is partnering with local Minnesota non-profit Moving Forward Africa for a benefit show at the Turf Club next month. The show was originally being organized by Larsen before his death on October 17, 2010.
The lineup features friends of Larsen such as Kristoff Krane and Ill Chemistry (Carnage and Desdamona) and local outfits Gramma's Boyfriend and Guitar Party. 100 percent of the cover charge will go to fund a hand pump borehole (used for water wells) in Nyamor Village in Kenya. For a full lineup listing, check out details below.
