This Sunday, April 3rd a benefit concert will be held at Toad’s Place for Mitchell Dubey, a local musician, bike enthusiast and, from virtually all accounts, all-around great guy who was shot and killed on March 24th during a botched home invasion at his Bassett Street, New Haven apartment. Performing at the benefit concert will be some of Dubey’s favorite bands including The Flaming Tsunamis (whom Dubey followed back to CT from Los Angeles), Call It Arson (who will be reuniting for this show), My Heart to Joy (their 2nd to last show ever), Slingshot Dakota and Brunt of It. Tickets will go on sale today at 6pm via eTix who will be waving their usual service fees in light of this tragedy. In addition, Toad’s Place will not be taking a cut of ticket sales, ultimately insuring that Mitch Dubey’s family will receive ALL proceeds generated by the show. Due to the overwhelming reaction from the local community so far this show will most likely sell out so make sure you purchase tickets early. If you are unable to attend, donations can still be made to Mitch Dubey’s family via Paypal at the address Lauren.Dubey@gmail.com.
