Joe Roberto, local Minneapolis musician and artist (Poverty Hash, Disasternoon), was recently diagnosed with a rare genetic disease. It has done a number on his body and has already landed him in the hospital more days than we care to think about. He will need continued care until his recovery.

To help out Joe and his partner Robyn, we are throwing a JoeFundMe fundraising event:

Sunday, September 26, 6pm—10pm, The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge
The Hook and Ladder will host a special fundraising concert and silent auction event. Very special guests TBA.

For those of you who would like to contribute, but are unable to attend the events (or want to contribute a little something extra) we have set up this JoeFundMe!

Now is the time to show support for Joe and Robyn, who have both contributed so much to the Minneapolis music community and the people that make it up. They love y’all, and you know you love them. Let's all help get Joe back on his feet and back on the Twin Cities’ stages!
