Benefit for I Am The World Trade Center Vocalist
While on tour this April in Fairfax, Va., Amy Dykes— vocalist for electropop duo I Am The World Trade Center—fell ill and had to be rushed to the hospital by bandmate Dan Geller.
After a series of tests, Dykes was diganosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma (cancer of the Lympahtic System). The tour was immediatley canceled, and Dykes is now undergoing chemotherapy.
To help raise money for the ailing singer's medical expenses, there will be a benefit in her hometown of Athens, Ga., this Friday, June 11, at 9 p.m. at dance club Boneshakers.
The benefit will feature like-minded local dance-party acts like the Krush Girls and the Baxterstreet Boyz.
There is also a benefit scheduled for July 4 in Phoenix, Ariz. So far, the group Mighty Six Ninety is on the bill. Further info on bands and a venue will be forthcoming.
