A benefit being held for Ryan Georg on Dec. 9 at Skylark in West Seattle
A benefit for Ryan Georg will be held Sunday, Dec. 9 at the Skylark in West Seattle. Doors open for the all-ages show at 5:00 p.m., with music starting at 6:00 p.m.
Ryan, the lead singer and guitarist of Olympia heavy metal band Saint Helen, was assaulted on Nov. 15 after leaving a show at El Corazon. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he spent a week recuperating from life-threatening injuries. Doctors have told Ryan that his recovery will be a long and arduous one. At the moment, he has begun speech therapy to relearn how to speak.
Saint Helen was originally slated to open the Dec. 9 show at the Skylark. The two other bands on the bill, The Whole Bolivian Army and Jodie Watts, agreed to turn the show into a benefit. All proceeds will be donated to Ryan’s medical fund. The Whole Bolivian Army, formerly of Seattle and now in Tacoma, plays co-ed indie rock. Jodie Watts, from Seattle, is known for its rowdy garage rock. A new opener was found in Head the Hive, a hard rock band from Portland, OR.
