DK Media and Charity Bomb Present: GARBAGE- Face the Music Benefit Concert
DK Media and Charity Bomb Proudly Present:
GARBAGE: Face The Music Foundation Benefit Concert
with The Jam Alker Band, Slow Mass, with a Special Appearance- Richard Patrick of Filter
Riviera Theatre Chicago
Monday May 20th 2019
A special evening that’s for sure, what with the band Garbage headlining a special show through DK Media and Charity Bomb to benefit the Face the Music Foundation and the perils of drug addiction.
When Rock n’ Roll collide for the purpose of promoting recovery and human transformation.
You gotta love this, with a benefit to such a great cause, one that’s so sorely needed right now in the present day.
That 101 WKQX helped in sponsoring this one of a kind show, only adds more luster to the event.
First off – kudos to my brothers in arms donating their time / energy/ expertise on all things “Live Videography”: that would be Wesley Nott and Bradley Glanzrock.
You guys went above and beyond in regards to documenting virtually everything, from the live interviews, the impromptu shoots backstage, let alone the live performances.
As for Ryan Ford and Matthew Leone of Charity Bomb- thanks for having such good faith in us to produce and get the work documented, which was sorely needed for this event.
Love both of you guys, and that goes to David Kinsler of David Kinsler Media as well.
As for Garbage: Shirley Manson, Butch Vig, Duke Erikson and Steve Marker: can’t thank you guys enough for donating your time to this special cause, and putting on a mighty fine show for the faithful and devoted.
Special thanks and a huge hug to Shirley Manson, who posted one of my photos of her performing live on her social media platforms from the event. So wonderful to know that she digs my photos.
And to have Matt Walker appear for soundcheck and also enjoy the show on his birthday no less…that makes things all the more wonderful for a Monday night at the Riviera Theatre.
Special thanks to Jam Alker of The Jam Alker Band, for spending some time to interview and help with PSA’s in regards to the benefit and its cause, and also to openers from Chicago- Slow Mass, a band that has a unique sound and vibe that’s well worth checking out and discovering.
And also special thanks to Richard Patrick of Filter, not only for taking the time for interviews and PSA’s, but also for performing with The Jam Alker band and playing “Take a Picture”.
Have to say with Garbage, that was definitely one of the highlights for the evening.
So coming full circle, to have so many come out on a Monday night at the Riv, in support of Face The Music, and everyone involved devote their time and energy for such a magnificent cause- means everything.
Cheers- Bobby Talamine – Music Photographer
