Upon hearing the news that local artist/musician/dj/all-around good guy, Dave Petrovich (Better known as Dave P of Party Sweat and The Very Knees), had an unfortunate run in with an out of control Canadian reveler in the early morning of January 1st, one which left him with a broken wrist, amongst other injuries, my first thought was to organize a raiding party and extract personal revenge from Canada. Cooler heads prevailed. Instead, The Happy Dog has teemed up with local bands Clovers, Filmstrip and Hot Cha Cha in organizing a benefit show this coming Friday night to help one of the most liked people in the Cleveland music scene cover his medical expenses. The action starts at 9, and then, once we get good and sauced, we can reconsider the idea of a raiding party.
