Charlie Pickett, To Be Hated Perform at 5 Points Lounge Benefit for Punk Rock Baby
As a young father, To Be Hated's frontman Johnny Pflug (AKA Johnny Love) understands how hard and stressful it is to support a family and raise a baby. As a punk rocker, Pflug knows that if you want to change anything, you gotta DIY. Less than half a year ago, Pflug's close friend and Churchill's regular, Chlesea Kronick gave birth to a baby girl Rosalie.
Rosalie was born prematurely and her father, Corporal Daniel Linnabary II, was able to spend almost two months with her, before getting deployed to Afghanistan in July. Tragically, Linnabary was killed a month later - Chelsea and Rosalie lost their husband and father. Pflug and his wife Cassie immediately figured out how to help the family, and honor the fallen soldier's memory.
"As a new parent, I am too familiar with the rising cost of
raising a family, and I really wanted to do whatever I could for Chelsea to help
ease the load," says Pflug.
The show will feature some of South Florida's best acts, Charlie Pickett, To Be Hated, Good Shepard, Los Bastardos Magnificos, the 707s, and the City Lines. All proceeds will go to Linnbarry's surving family.
In addition to the show, Hated for Trying Records is issuing a compilation album featuring 27 South Florida's heaviest hitters -- with all proceeds going to Chelsea and baby Rosalie.
Benefit for Chelsea and Rosalie Linnabary at 8 p.m. on Nov. 16 at Five Points Lounge, 2608 South Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, with Charlie Pickett, To Be Hated, Los Bastardos Magnificos, The 707's, Good Shepard, the City Lines, the 707's.
