Irene McGee Friendraiser, Toasting the Fire

Sunny Irene

Irene McGee, host of the popular radio program/podcast “No One’s Listening”, lost her apartment and one of her cats in a tragic fire back in February. Next Wednesday, April 11th her friends are hosting a benefit for her at the Red Devil Lounge in San Francisco. The event’s line-up is impressive and includes such luminaries as Exene Cervanka, Ben Fong-Torres and Kitten on the Keys. Advance tickets are now on sale.
