The Second Annual Cooper Fest, in Redondo Beach last Saturday, raised over $30,000 for The Center for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at UCLA. Pennywise’s Jim Lindberg, who mentored Cooper Jones on songwriting throughout the pandemic, performed songs from his soon to be released, new album. Jones also performed a new song, “Hollow,” as did his bassist Slater Heidrich, who performed his original song “Missed Opportunites.Then Jones and Tom Watson collaborated on an original song they were performing for the first time.
Other bands that performed (and will be performing this summer at BeachLife) were Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds, Country Breakfast and Kevin Sousa. For more about Cooper Cure, visit CoopersCure.org. ER
