The gloomy rockers have roped in The Charlatans' Tim Burgess to DJ at the LA bash...

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and – THE CHARLATANS‘ TIM BURGESS are amongst the acts who will play at a fundraising show in LOS ANGELES on Saturday (March 16) to raise bail money for an imprisoned friend of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

The all-day event, billed as a backyard BBQ bash, will see Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Peaches and Beachwood Sparks perform live alongside Burgess and a number of others who will DJ. Admission is free, though collections will be made for imprisoned Anton Alfred Newcombe.

Newcombe, a member of local LA band The Brian Jonestown Massacre, was arrested on March 9 after allegedly attacking a man during a bar brawl. He is currently in an LA Sheriff department jail on a $30,000 bail demand.

The event is being held near the Highland area of the city.
