Richard Swift's tribute concert to feature The Shins' James Mercer, Foxygen and more

As an industry and his fans still come to terms with the tragic loss of Frightened Rabbit’s own Richard Swift, the plans for his tribute concert are starting to surface. The concert will take place at the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles on December 13.

There will be scheduled performances by the Shins’ James Mercer, Tim Heidecker, Damien Jurado, Foxygen, Cold War Kids, the Mynabirds, Pure Bathing Culture, and others.

All proceeds from the event will go to Richard Swift’s family. The sad loss came in July of this year due to causes related to alcohol addiction. Earlier this month, a vinyl subscription series was launched in his memory.
