For a Good Cause: Jayrock Showcase to Benefit Free Clinic

Musicians and music fans alike — cool people, in other words — are no strangers to the plight of the uninsured, because we’ve all been there, right? Hell, some of us are still there. So thank heavens for free clinics, like KU Med’s Jaydoc clinic, that not only treats your sick ass but rocks it once a year with a benefit show featuring solid local bands. Last year’s show was at the Record Bar and brought Ad Astra Per Aspera and White Whale. This year’s Jayrock is at the Mission Theatre and features The New Amsterdams, Fourth of July, Dead Girls Ruin Everything and the Broken Stools (a med school band that does mostly Johnny Cash covers, from what I’ve been told). Here’s the info.
