Bobby Lanphier Benefit

9 p.m. Thursday, October 26 (all ages), at the Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo Rd., 216-383-1124. All of the suggested $10 donation goes to Lanphier.


The Cowslingers are back in the saddle. Now splintered into the Whiskey Daredevils and Jack Fords, the 'Slingers will reunite to play a benefit show for Daredevils guitarist Bobby Lanphier, who was seriously injured in an auto accident earlier this month. And if the one-time return of the country-fried Cleveland favorites isn't enough, they'll be joined by the rest of the city's twang-rock royalty, including Uncle Scratch's Gospel Revival, Lords of the Highway, and Hayshaker Jones.
