Last September's tour accident that left the Scotland Yard Gospel Choir gearless and with significant medical debt has brought together the city's local musicians and fans through countless unique and proactive benefits. The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir united the Chicago music scene through their passion, humble demeanor and ambitious spirit. And with respect, we've just wanted to channel those same ideals towards helping the band get back to doing what they were born to do, as soon as possible.

Man-B-Que, a social grilling club, has teamed up with the Scotland Yard Gospel Choir's label, Bloodshot Records, and RedLight Productions for the Que For The Choir benefit this Thursday, February 25, at the Darkroom. Man-B-Que will be providing burgers and chili for both the carnivores and the vegans at no additional cost and they've put together a great line-up of live acts that includes The Whiskey Drifters, Weepin' Willows, and Mikey Peterson and The Trust. DR MR of Lincoln Hall/Schubas and Bald E of Metro/Smart Bar along with Scotland Yard Gospel Choir's DJ Elia will provide tunes in between live sets. The doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15.
