David Linton’s New York 5.0

David Linton’s New York 5.0,
A 50-year celebration and benefit @ Tonic
(107 Norfolk St. between Rivington & Delancey, NYC)
Monday, March 20, 2005 8 pm till late

In celebration of the fiftieth birthday of David Linton, downtown music pioneer, Tonic has donated its space for an entire evening of performances by musicians and artists who have worked with Linton over the past twenty-five years.

Unfortunately, David’s birthday has been darkened by a most distressing event: He was recently robbed in his home at knifepoint, emerging fortunately unscathed, but losing all of his equipment, which sadly contained much of his recent work. In order to recoup the loss of what can be replaced, and salute his talents and contributions to music in New York, his friends and collaborators through the years are joining together for a night of multimedia performances on March 20th. We hope you can join us, to both celebrate his work and help make it possible for him to continue it.
