United for a common cause of good come some fantastic Hardcore acts for this “Benefit For Dr. Know”, guitarists for the legendary Bad Brains. It will be hosted by the New York Hardcore Chronicles. The event is free to the general public and will run for several hours. Donation tables will be stationed around the show for people to toss in a few bucks to help cover the medical expenses that Know incurred after an incident last year. Come on out and show your support for this fine musician and all he inspired and of course drop a few bucks off at the donation table.

As many of you know, Gary Miller (aka Dr. Know or Doc), guitarist of the Legendary Washington DC punk band Bad Brains, suffered cardiac arrest in early November last year. His condition quickly progressed to multiple organ failure, and he was on life support for almost 2 weeks. At the time, his doctors gave him a 5% chance of survival. But by the power of PMA, LOVE and FAMILY, he was able to pull through and survive.

He spent nearly three months in the hospital, until he was finally able to be transferred to a medical rehabilitation facility where he is getting the proper physical therapy and treatment that he needs to make a full recovery. In medical rehab, he continues to make incredible progress every day. Doc and his loved ones are now confident that he will make a full recovery and continue to touch our lives with his incredible music, kindness, and positivity.
