Kyle Lesley is a San Francisco audio engineer, social activist, and all-around excellent human being. He is also a person who was recently diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma. Given that he has helped out countless folks in the city’s independent music scene with his know-how, it only makes sense that a bunch of musicians got together and decided to throw him a party this Sunday at El Rio to help pay for his treatment and some other necessities.
From 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. this Sunday, Nov 10, a donation of $5 to $20 gets you five bands and a DJ, plus, you know, everything else good that’s usually at El Rio (alcohol, a patio). If you’re lucky, Kelly McFarling will do some Whitney.
