"On Friday, March 8th, the Rollins Band, The Original Sinners [Exene Cervenka's band], and Wayne Kramer of the MC5 will be playing a benefit show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. The purpose of this show is to raise money and awareness for the West Memphis Three. The West Memphis Three is a group of young men who were unjustly tried and convicted of the murders of three young boys in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993. Right now they are trying to win a new trial, so two of the men can be released and one of them, Damien Echols, can be spared the death penalty. Money is desperately needed to pay for their overwhelming legal costs. Please go to www.WM3.org to check out all the details on this case. Tickets are on sale now and are available from the Troubadour box office and through Ticketmaster. Doors open at 8pm. Along with a great show, there will also be a West Memphis Three information table, and a silent auction will be hosted featuring autographed items from the Rollins Band, The Supersuckers, Exene, and others. You will also be able to purchase the West Memphis Three Benefit CD which features Tom Waits, Long Beach Dub All-Stars, Rocket From The Crypt, The Supersuckers with Eddie Vedder, Zeke, and other great bands.(deadontheweb.com)"
