Benefit Concert Announced For Jerry Bryant (JBTV) Ft. Naked Raygun, Andrew WK, & More

If you’re from Chicagoland and haven’t been living under a rock for the last thirty plus years, then you’re familiar with JBTV and its host and producer, Jerry Bryant. Jerry and his team has been featuring regional, underground, and international artists on the 60-minute TV show exposing them to a larger audience.

Unfortunately, Jerry has been entrenched in a battle against cancer. After being diagnosed with Stage 4 colorectal cancer, he has undergone two surgeries to remove tumors from both his colon and lung. He is now in the throws of a 6-month stint of chemotherapy, without the financial means to support it.

The musical community – including Metro Chicago, JBTV, Charity Bomb, and 101 WKQX – will come together to throw Jerry a benefit concert with all proceeds going to his cancer treatment on Friday, March 8th at Metro. The bill will feature Naked Raygun, Andrew W.K., Local H, plus members of Kill Hannah (Mat, Jonny, and Greg), Stabbing Westward (Walt Flakus), Plain White T’s (Tom Higgensen), OURs (Jimmy Gnecco), Broken Hope (Jeremy Wagner), Morrisey (Matt Walker), Lizzy Plapinger and many more.

You can choose between General Admission tickets, VIP balcony tickets, or a VIP table for two! Check out the event page for full details and we will see you on March 8th!
