William Beckett to Host Benefit StageIt Show William Beckett will be performing a StageIt show tonight in which all proceeds will go toward Andy Mrotek's hospital bills.
Message from WilliamLast week my good friend and musical brother Andy Mrotek was jumped and attacked by multiple people, leaving him in need of reconstructive surgery. As procedures like this are very expensive, I wanted to do something to help Butcher through this horrible time. On August 6th I will be playing a benefit show on Stageit.com in which all proceeds will be donated to Andy to help pay for his time in the hospital. I will be playing some of Andy’s favorite TAI songs in his honor.
If you have not attended a Stageit show before, its basically a live stream performance that you can watch me play from your computer at home. I’ve set the show up so that you can pay anything that you want from 10 cents to whatever. Keep in mind that this is a special benefit for Andy Mrotek and all proceeds will go towards helping him pay for his surgery.
Thanks, and see you there. Get your tickets now! #andy mrotek #stageit #william beckett

Very cool. As terrible as things like this are, it's always so nice to see people coming together in support.

just working on my soul punk opera
I bet he had the whole attack planned Tonya Harding style so he could play a benefit show. TYPICAL BILL.

Never been on StageIt, but kinda creepy to see that little convo between random teens on the sidebar :/

I guess he raised over $3,000 in tips alone for The Butcher, so awesome!
I think you can also donate on andy's paypal account or something but i can't find it

It was a cute little set. He forgot the words a few times and he seemed really emotional when talking about Butcher. For some reason I didn't realize how many fangirls he still has left and going strong. They were going full force lol
