In March 2012, Scott Jones, drummer for the San Francisco rock band Hank IV, was injured in a terrible accident and suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). His wife awoke to a loud crash and found Scott unconscious at the bottom of the stairs of their Bernal Heights home. He’d fallen backwards while climbing the steps and landed striking the back of his head on the concrete landing at the bottom of the staircase. It’s suspected that his accident was related to a back injury he experienced a few days prior to his fall. And now, having at last emerged from several months in a coma and multiple surgeries, Scott is finally back living home with his wife and their three-year old son but he requires 24-hr.-a-day medical and nursing care not covered by insurance.

Scott's bandmates and friends from the local and national rock scene, including Hank IV, Hot Lunch, Isaiah Mitchell & Phil Manley, and extra special guests Brickbat (feat. David Yow and Mac McNeilly of The Jesus Lizard), are rallying together to host the Scott Jones Medical Benefit Rock Show, in conjunction with Bottom of the Hill, from which 100% of the proceeds will go to the Scott Jones Medical Fund towards Scott's ongoing medical and nursing care.
