A Benefit for Tuli Kupferberg
Produced by Hal Willner

All tickets are held at will call and can only be picked up the night of the show, anytime within one hour before showtime.
Tuli Kupferberg, the influential songwriter who co-founded the Fugs, suffered two strokes, in April and
September 2009, which left him blind, confined to his apartment and in need of 24-hour care. He is recovering
well—he is able to speak clearly—but has overwhelming medical expenses not covered by Medicare or the very
modest publishing/royalties income he earns at the age of 86. A number of his friends and admirers are coming to
his aid by performing in a benefit concert produced by Hal Willner, including his fellow Fugs, John Kruth and an all-star band, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, Pete Stampfel, John Zorn and others who will be announced soon.
