We Wanna Help Will Sexton – Antone’s, TX

The musical community of Austin is always ready to lend a hand when one of their own needs a little help, usually by way of a benefit show with an incredible line-up like the Monday night show at Antone’s benefitting Will Sexton who had a mild stroke in December. While he can still play guitar (he even played at the show), remembering songs (including his own) is still difficult and he’s been instructed to take things “a little slower.”

Fans, friends (including Bukka and Terry Allen, Victoria Williams, BettySoo, Eliza and Tony Gilkyson, and Patty Griffin) and family (Will’s brother Charlie, girlfriend Charlie Faye and daughter Finley) showed their love and support with the multi-set show and silent auction with items such as custom guitars, autographed memorabilia from Bob Dylan and Paul Simon and a giant mosaic of Will.
