Saturday To-Do: 'The One-Legged, Ass-Kickin' Benefit'

'THE ONE-LEGGED, ASS-KICKIN' BENEFIT'
9 p.m. Stickyz. $10.

Back in November, Derek Holcomb, of Little Rock, was shot in the leg while he was deer hunting. Holcomb logged a stay of more than a month in the hospital, and after several complications, lost his right leg below the knee. Spending that long in the hospital is not only taxing on a physical and emotional level. It's also costly from a financial standpoint.

To help Holcomb with these expenses, his good buddies in The Good Time Ramblers teamed up with Stickyz to put on this benefit concert.

Holcomb has been upbeat despite the trauma, tweeting "I've used the phrase 'dodged that bullet' more times than I can count. I guess I have to shelve that one immediately & indefinitely" and "Should I get tennis balls for my walker? #behonest." Holcomb has even managed to make it out to see the Ramblers, getting onstage as guest vocalist for the group's cover of The Band's "Atlantic City."

You can bet on that happening again at this benefit.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
