Detroit Bar is hosting a benefit tomorrow night for Rebecca Willis, a 22-year-old Newport Beach resident. While crossing Newport Blvd. in Costa Mesa early last Saturday morning, Willis was hit by a car. The Register says "Willis broke bones throughout her body and is in an induced coma."
Family and friends described Willis as a warm-hearted and loving; she worked with a nonprofit called Invisible Children to raise awareness about Ugandan child soldiers and hosted many travelers at her home she shared with roommates via couchsurfing.org.
Brothers of Brazil, Slime Kings, Rankin, and Glen Stefani will perform at the benefit to help pay for Willis' medical bills. Even if you weren't feeling altruistic (and why wouldn't you be?), it would be a good time to see Slime Kings, who are finalists for Best Live Band at the OC Music Awards this year.
