"Crazy" Carl Benefit

"Crazy" Carl's Birthday Benefit

Sunday, July 14th @ 5 PM

We are rallying together to support "Crazy" Carl--a fixture of Austin's "weird" culture since the 1960s-- as he enters his final days. Please consider joining us at Esther's Follies on Sunday, July 14th as we celebrate his birthday and help raise funds for end of life care--with performances by the Backporch Review and Uranium Savages. 

Carl Hickerson is an original Austin Weirdo who has been a feature of Sixth Street for decades-- you've definitely seen him outside the Esther's window once or twice. As an artist and community activist, he has contributed with pride to the “weirdness” that makes Austin such a special place to be! In addition to his failing health, Mr. Hickerson is struggling financially and is hopeful that this event will generate some assistance he and his family can utilize for his final expenses. 

No tickets necessary--everyone is welcome to attend. 

 Please check out our Facebook event for more details and to stay updated.
