On Sunday, Dec. 4, the Dakota jazz club at 1010 Nicollet Mall will host a public benefit for Karl Schwartz, a Dakota bartender who was beaten and robbed two weeks ago. The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with a silent auction, followed by music by an extensive lineup of local musicians at 7 p.m.
A $10 suggested donation is requested at the door. All proceeds from the cover and the auction go to benefit Schwartz to cover his medical bill and lost work time. Performers scheduled for the event include Davina & the Vagabonds, Lucia Newell, Ashleigh Still, Debbie Duncan, Dennis Spears, Ginger Commodore, Lee Blaske, Mark Weisberg, Bobby Commodore and more.
