Tony Lorenzo Benefit Show
Friday, November 4
If you live in the Elmwood Village you probably heard about the brutal robbery and shooting on Bird and Richmond last Wednesday. The victim, 25-year-old Tony Lorenzo, a local musician, was shot in the neck and, for now, is unable to walk. Tony was shot in the area he lived in, an area he has lived in all of his life. As a local musician he has been the guitarist of several bands, including Sons of Azrael, and most recently hardcore/metal band Ritual Quarantine. Two things need to happen now: The Buffalo Police Deparment needs to find the shooter and the people who call the Elmwood Village home need to step up and support Tony. The latter is already happening. On Friday (Nov 4, tomorrow!) DBGB in Allentown will host a Tony Lorenzo Benefit Show featuring a slew of local hardcore bands including Hellcannon, Lewd Dewdz, Final Insult, and Vile Crocodile with Malik Saint, presented by Shaken Stylus. There will be a $5 minimum donation but people are encouraged to give as much as they can. If you can’t make it to the show, you can still donate on PayPal, just go to firstname.lastname@example.org. Come together, put an end to violence in our city, and help Tony out. —cory perla
