A Night of Music for John Bowen @Sulfur Studios 

ON Thursday, March 25, Savannah unexpectedly lost John Bowen, a dedicated supporter of live music, activist, and irreplaceable community member.

From his involvement in the first Really Really Free Market and founding of Savannah Food Not Bombs to his passion for punk rock, John struck a chord with everyone he met.

Members of the local music scene have planned a benefit show to help his fiancé, Julianna, with funeral expenses. The event also welcomes canned food donations, which will help feed hungry people through Savannah Food Not Bombs.

John was always out on the punk and DIY scene, tirelessly supporting local bands. In his honor and memory, Sulfur Studios will host a full evening of music featuring John’s favorite Savannah groups: Crazy Bag Lady, Greta O. and the Toxic Shock, The Gumps, Jeff Two-Names and the Born Agains, The Lipschitz, and an acoustic set from Phoenix Godwin and Josh Taft.

If you can’t make it and want to support, head over to John Bowen Funeral Expenses on GoFundMe.com to make a donation.

Wednesday, April 6, doors at 6 p.m., show at 7 p.m., $7 or $3 with three cans of vegetarian food
