Artist Gary Houston of Voodoo Catbox has created a fantastic silkscreen rock poster to benefit Phil Alvin. Blasters founding member and lead singer Alvin was hit by the nasty Mersa virus about a year ago and nearly died last summer during a relapse, according to his brother, guitarist, singer and songwriter Dave Alvin. Phil has since recovered but has amassed significant medical bills that will need help to pay off.
The original members of the Blasters will reunite and be joined by X, the Knitters, Master of Ceremonies Big Sandy, Dave Gleason, Mike Eldred Trio, The California Feetwarmers, The Hula Girls, and The Americans on January 26 at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California for a benefit dubbed “Brotherly Love: A Night for Our Brother Phil Alvin.”
The benefit is sold out, but if you would like to contribute to Phil’s medical relief fund by mail, you can make a check payable to New Highway INC. and send to:
New Highway INC.
1563 Solano Ave. #439
Berkeley, CA, 94707
All proceeds from the sale of this poster will go to medical bills. Any posters not sold at the show will be available online via the artist at VoodooCatbox.com
