Monday Sept 8th at Billy Bob’s some of the brightest names in our music scene will gather to pay tribute to a sportswriter named Richard Durrett. If you’re unfamiliar with Richard’s story, you may ask why? Well, the answer lies in the fact that he was an unusually kind, caring person and really thorough professional journalist. The type of guy that by the recounting of friends would text out individual texts for Fathers Day, New Year etc instead of a group text. The type of guy that worked his way up the journalistic ladder quickly in the cutthroat world of modern sports journalism via sheer kindness and tenacity. Tragically, Richard passed away suddenly at his home a few weeks back. He leaves behind a young family. His friends have organized this concert as a way to raise funds for his kids and honor their friend.
We can’t announce the line-up exactly just yet because of some fun, music-biz legalese radius clause stuff…but just know that you don’t want to miss it. In addition to the music, the night includes one of the largest sports auctions of all time.
