In 2014, I released my first full-length album. As an album release show, I organized an all-day music event to benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository, at which I played with 16 bands over the course of 13 hours. It was called, wincingly, Day Of The Dowd. We raised over $10,000 for the charity. It almost killed me.

Exactly 5 years later to the day, and against the advice of medical professionals everywhere, 
DAY OF THE DOWD 2 will take place at the mighty FitzGerald's Nightclub in scenic Berwyn, IL on SATURDAY, NOV. 9th from noon-midnight, with a few key differences:

- No new album
- All different bands from last time 
- A new and wonderful beneficiary, the 

UI Health Pilsen Food Pantry
- Only 12 bands/hours this time (because I'm old)
