The Atlanta art and music scene is the blood and pulse to our city. It is our duty as citizens to make sure that the heartbeat doesn’t stop, and it continues to thrive and be something we are proud to call ours. A local Atlanta band in our beautiful muse of a city needs our help.
Jungol, a band of not just music, but art in of itself had a rather sudden, and tragic circumstance dropped on its feet this past June. Josh Yoder, one of the founding members of Jungol, was diagnosed with a brain tumor after suffering a seizure doing what he loves the most, making music. With the help and support of his family and friends, Josh is making the necessary strides and focusing on beating what has temporarily halted some of his creativity.
As a community of the arts and music scene, the natural response to hearing that one of our own has had a hiccup in the road, “what can we do to help?”. Josh’s brother Graham Yoder, another founding member of Jungol, along with his family have set up a benefit show in his honor.
This Sunday, Nov.12th, members of Jungol with the help of Today The Moon Tomorrow The Sun, The Boy Jones, The Locksmyth, and Stokeswood have all agreed to perform at The EARL for the benefit. As the event page describes, this show will be something special with lots of fun surprises and guest to accompany this great event. As a community this is where they need help from you, buy a ticket and go to The EARL this Sunday and show your love and support to Josh during this rather trying time. As much as Josh has given to Atlanta, it is our turn to give back to him!
“Josh and the family are very thankful for all the support and love he’s been getting. We feel very blessed to have so many amazing people in our lives.” – Graham Yoder
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased through this link. All proceeds from the show will go in helping with the expenses needed for Josh’s recovery. If you can’t make it to the show and still want to contribute, the Yoder family has already set up a Go Fund Me page for donations.
