Guitarist Tom Carter was hospitalized this summer in Germany while on tour with his band Charalambides. The influential avant-gardist is battling pneumonia on a very serious level, and doctors have said he will be sidelined until at least January. Some of his fellow traveler musicians — locally, Sapat, Tropical Trash, Shedding, and R. Keenan Lawler, organized by promoters Cropped Out and The Other Side of Life — are putting together benefits for him all over to help raise money for his expenses. All of the door funds will go to the Robert Thomas Carter Irrevocable Trust, and additional donations are encouraged, in person and at the site listed above. —Peter Berkowitz
