OAKLAND, CA – July 9, 2003 – One of the Bay Area’s brightest musical lights, bassist Matthew Sperry, was killed in a traffic accident on June 5.

Sperry was a featured performer in the acclaimed San Francisco production of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” which recently concluded a seven month run at the Victoria Theatre. Sperry also recorded with Tom Waits, David Byrne, and a host of musicians from the SF Bay Area and Seattle New Music scene.

“Hedwig” creator Stephen Trask, star Kevin Cahoon and Sperry’s colleagues in the “Hedwig” cast will headline the bill, which also includes members of the SF Bay Area New Music scene. Additional, surprise musical guests may also perform.
