BUCKCHERRY To Perform At 'Aidan Has A Posse' Benefit Concert

10th Street Entertainment, Flying Television, and Bowery Presents announce Aidan Has A Posse, a special benefit concert featuring a performance by rockers BUCKCHERRY and a bevy of surprise guests on Thursday, August 11 at 8 p.m. Outrageous comedian and actor Jim Florentine will host the night. This intimate event is being held at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, New York, and will include a silent auction with works from famed street artists Shepard Fairey, Ewok, DickChicken, motorcycles from Indian Larry, and much more.

All of the musicians, artists, producers and venue are joining the "posse" in support of Aidan Seeger, a beautiful 6-year old boy who was recently diagnosed with a rare brain disease called Adrenoleukodystrophy, or ALD. ALD severely affects neurological signals, swiftly and irreversibly destroying nerve cells. While there is no known cure, bone marrow transplants have been known to stop the degenerative process. There will also be painless cheek swabbing on site to build a bank for bone marrow donors, a crucial part in the fight against ALD. This posse is ready for a fight!

BUCKCHERRY guitarist Keith Nelson says, "The Seeger family has been friends of ours for many years; it has been devastating to learn about Aidan's recent diagnosis of ALD. With the family's blessing we quickly put together an event in Aidan's back yard, Brooklyn, New York, to raise both awareness and financial support for the upcoming battle Aidan will be facing. We are grateful for the long running friendship of the Seegers and fortunate to be in a position to lend a hand. The initial response has been overwhelming, with Bowery Presents, Flying Television, Shepard Fairey, Ewok and many others already jumping on board to help. It will be a night to remember."

VIP tickets are $150 and include meet-and-greets with BUCKCHERRY and friends and priority seating. Regular tickets are $25.

Net proceeds go to Aidan Seeger's medical bills.
