Bunny Matthews may be best known for creating the 9th Ward couple Vic and Nat'ly Broussard, but the artist, cartoonist (whose work appeared in Gambit) and writer has detailed all sorts of local characters in humorous and sometimes biting commentary on life in New Orleans. Matthews announced in June that he has brain cancer. This benefit show features some of his friends and fans, including Quintron & Miss Pussycat (pictured), King James and the Special Men, Guitar Lightnin' Lee and His Thunder Band, Creole String Beans, The Lonely Lonely Knights and O.L.D. There are raffles and a silent auction.
