Chicago Musicians Pull Together To Help Brent Puls

serious billsThey're calling in the "National Endowment For The Brents" -- and it's yet another example of Chicago musicians coming together for a great cause.  As friends of Brent Puls describe the situation:

Our friend Brent Puls-- songwriter, painter, nerd, one-time rapper(?!), and "sexy-sax" man-- has had some medical issues of late.

Basically, a childhood gut problem got seriously out of whack and it almost killed him. He's doing okay now, but that's only after a lot of $urgery.

The mission: help him out with some of the medical bills.  Some of our favorite Chicago musicians  --  including Joe Pug, Birdy On The Moon (featuring Wilco's Pat Sansone), Brent's old band Bumpus, Terrible Spaceship, Leadfoot, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, and Rachel Yamagata -- have dedicated tracks to a mix available via

Along with Brent's L.A. friends, they hope to solicit your donation in exchange for a download.  Please consider helping.
