International Pop Overthrow!
Eric Howell wants to invite you to a special evening in honor of Carlos Hernandez Gomez --- cherished friend, journalist, political expert, Beatlemaniac and devoted Chicagoan, who lost his battle with cancer last January. Please join Carlos’ wife, Randi Belisomo Hernandez, and friends and family for this celebration of Carlos’ life through the music that meant so much to him. The event will be a true rock and roll salute to Carlos, with performances by some of his local favorites and closest friends: The Beatle Brothers, Phil Angotti and Brad Elvis, and Eric Howell. To kick off the festivities, Carlos’ own band, The Gear, will reunite to perform for the first time in 15 years. Carlos’ best friend, actor Joe Farina, will serve as master of ceremonies for the evening. All proceeds from the concert and auctions will benefit Living Water International (LWI), a faith-based, non-profit organization that helps communities in developing countries acquire safe drinking water. In particular, the proceeds will help to build a water well in Carlos’ honor in Haiti, as well as fund additional clean water projects.
