Andrew Leahey Brain Surgery Benefit Feat. The Wild Feathers, Nikki Lane & More
I doubt many people still harbor pie-in-the-sky ideas about the compensation of freelance music journalists or independent singer-songwriters, but just to be clear: Neither of those gigs comes with big bucks or health insurance. Not even when you’re as well liked as Andrew Leahey, who’s made many a friend in these parts as he’s practiced both crafts. Several of those friends stepped up to the plate when he received the sobering news that he needed surgery to remove a brain tumor from his hearing nerve. With a successful procedure behind him, there are still medical bills and recovery time ahead. Here’s to the boost he’ll get from a benefit show with The Wild Feathers, Great Peacock, Nikki Lane, Derek Hoke and other local faves in the lineup.
