SJ noted a few days ago that Calvin Johnson of K Records and various influential indie bands such as Beat Happening and the current Dub Narcotic Sound System was in an auto accident recently.

K Records has updates and info about benefits, as, of course, the musicians’ insurance is limited to nonexistent.

No, we don’t need universal health-care – why, when independent musicians get hurt badly enough to require hospital time, a few benefits can raise as much as a couple thousand dollars!
