Two veteran luminaries of the local-and-beyond music scene, drummer Chris Turco and guitarist/producer Matthew Cullen (both of the band Ultram), have recently lost thousands and thousands of dollars’ worth of music gear to a burst pipe and massive flooding. Musicians have a way of banding together for a cause, especially when the beneficiaries are of their own clan. On Saturday, January 18, BSP in Kingston hosts a benefit show to help Turco and Cullen with the costs of relocating their studio, recovering their gear and pursuing whatever legal action may be recommended.

Legendary alt-folk songwriter Richard Buckner will perform, as will DJ Sterling and Ultram. The doors open at 8:30 and the suggested donation is $10. BSP Lounge is located at 323 Wall Street in Kingston. For more information, call (845) 481-5158 or visit www.bspkingston.com.
