Last month Sammy “Babydude” Yager was seriously injured in a bicycle accident in his hometown of Saratoga Springs, New York, and remains in a coma. Though he’s showing remarkable progress in his rehabilitation, he still faces a long road ahead and, of course, a mounting pile of medical bills. Vanyaland has teamed up with Every Day Is A Mixtape — who recently released a cassette from Birthdays, Yager’s electronic music project — to throw a benefit show next week, August 21, at Great Scott. It’s a community effort, and all money raised will go to the Samuel Yager Fund, established by Shane Artsy.
Check out some tunes from the bands below, as well as the event flyer. To keep tabs on Yager’s progress, check out the Babydude Watch, penned daily by his friends and mother, Jennifer “Babymom” Demarco.
