….Pietasters benefit show!….
….this past wednesday a couple of good friends and a whole bunch of loyal fans got together to honor the memory of Todd Eckhardt with an epic performance that raised over $15,000 for the scholarship in Todd’s name at the Duke Ellington school of the arts….also, in collaboration with DC Brau and Ska Brewing Company a new Pietasters themed beer was released and all of the proceeds went to Todd’s charity…..before the show Dave said to me that this was going to be one of those shows that you look back on and say “remember that show at the Black Cat….” little did he know his sentiments were actually an understatement. The evening kicked off with amazing sets by The Shifters and Caz and The Day Laborers….then the Pietasters took the stage for one of the best performances of their career….an outstanding job was done by everyone involved and the evening was an incredible success….(and thanks to Bernadette for shooting some of these awesome photos as well!)….
