Sad news to report about Russ Rankin, a.k.a. DJ Ranx of KDHX and the leader of Dubtronix: He had a stroke and a heart attack last week.
To help defray medical bills, stalwart local reggae acts Murder City Players, Youth & Roots and Yard Squad will be performing a benefit show for him at the Rockstar Nightclub on Thursday, May 7. Guest vocalists are promised by those planning the event. Doors are at 8, the show starts at 9, and admission is just $8.
