I’m going to keep my comments short. There’s going to be a benefit next Sunday, Dec. 28, 2 – 8 pm. at the Bistro, 1001 B St. in Hayward, (CA). for S. Clay Wilson, the underground Zap Comix artist. Donated beer, great music, things to buy to support this very inportant and zany artist…Read on…
- On November 2nd, legendary Underground cartoonist S. Clay Wilson of Zap Comix fame, creator of The Checkered Demon, suffered a serious brain injury. His recovery will be long and difficult, and he is currently too disoriented to return home to his normal life.
- With expenses mounting, long-time friend and musician Dave Hodtwalker has rallied Wilson’s friends in the San Francisco Bay Area artistic community by organizing the Jomo Jam Blues Benefit for Sunday, December 28th at The Bistro in Hayward. In addition to The Dave Walker Band’s regular jam session featuring Hodtwalker, Kenny Gross, Andrew G., Vic and Whitt Vicena, and Roger Lind, special guest musicians will join in, including Underground cartoonist Mark (Cobalt 60) Bode. There will be food, free amplifier service coupons donated by Father’s Amp Repair, an art sale with Wilson’s comic books and other collectibles, and at the end of the evening a special raffle will be held. Prizes include: Wilson-signed posters donated by Hippy Comix, Inc., unique beverages donated by the Celebrator Beer News Magazine, a special S-type guitar created by Andrew G., paintings and drawings by Annette Hodtwalker, and more!
- Come and celebrate the holidays by honoring S. Clay Wilson: a unique, original, and outrageous artist!
Where: The Bistro, 1001 B. St., Hayward CA (three blocks from Hayward BART station)
When: Sunday, Dec. 28., 2-8pm.
