Racquets, FreeWorld, The Sheiks and Pop Ritual will perform from 6 to 9 tonight at ChrisCrosswalk Benefit at The Blue Monkey, 2012 Madison.
Chris Phillips, who was a server at Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, was killed in an auto accident while crossing Madison near the Blue Monkey, said David Hacking, who worked with him at the restaurant.
The event is to raise funds for a crosswalk to be built where Phillips was killed, said Hacking, who is lead singer/guitarist in Racquets. “City of Memphis approved a crosswalk,” Hacking said. “This is basically raising funds. We’ve raised $2,000 and we need $2,000 more.”
The crosswalk is slated to include a caution light and a speed limit drop, Hacking said.
Donations will be taken at the door or online at ioby.org#ChrisCrosswalk.
