From WAPS-FM this morning:
91.3 The Summit is proud to support "The Wild World of Alfred McMoore: a Multimedia Retrospective to Benefit Community Support Services featuring the Black Keys" on Friday, November 27th at Musica, in downtown Akron, at 6:00 p.m. Guests will have an opportunity to view outsider artist Alfred McMoore's unusual drawings and see Akron's own Black Keys in an intimate club setting, all while benefiting Community Support Services.
Alfred McMoore was a longtime friend of the band who often used the term "black key," the inspiration for their name. He passed away in September, but he will be remembered on the 27th, when his sprawling pencil and crayon drawings will be on display in the upstairs galleries at Musica.
Although he had mental health issues throughout his life, McMoore was able to live independently with the help of Community Support Services. Proceeds from the Musica show will benefit more than 2,000 people currently being treated by Community Support Services in Northeast Ohio.
Tickets for this exclusive show will be available starting at $50 this Saturday, October 31st at ticketweb.com.
A limited number of tickets will be available at different price tiers that include signed CDs, t-shirts, and a post-show meet and greet with the Black Keys. Go to akronmusica.com for details.
I have linked to Jim Carney's story about McMoore on his name, above. You may know that Jim is also the father of the Black Keys' Patrick Carney.
