Mark Sandman Memorial Concert Finalized

July 19, 1999, 10:15 am PT

Mark Sandman

Details for the First Annual Mark Sandman Concert have been finalized for Sunday (July 25) in Cambridge, Mass. featuring Morphine's Dana Colley and Billy Conway on the bill.

Slated for Central Square on Brookline St., the two-hour afternoon show will include performances from many of the late Sandman's musical peers. More acts may be added, but confirmed so far are: Treat Her Right (Sandman's previous band), Either/Orchestra, Mr. Airplane Man, Superhero hi-Jinx, the Ray Corvair Trio, Moveable Bubble, Wooden Leg/Pale Brothers, Dinty and the Children, and Hypnosonics Festival Ensemble.

Some of the other musicians included here are ex-Presidents of the United States of America leader Chris Ballew and Dickie Barrett of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. The complete lineups are listed below.

In addition to the outdoor show, which will run from 3-6 p.m., the nearby Middle East -- which is co-producing the event -- will be open for friends and fans to share their thoughts on Sandman. There will also be a video collage shown upstairs at the club showing footage from Sandman's career.

The show will benefit the Mark Sandman Music Education Fund. Those attending are asked to make a donation to the fund, in lieu of the organizers charging for tickets. In the event of rain, the show will be rescheduled for Aug. 1.

Sandman died at the age of 46 of a heart attack while onstage in Palestrina, Italy on July 3 (allstar, July 6).
