A few months back we were saddened by the news that Benjamin Curtis, guitarist and drummer for pop duo School of Seven Bells was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma. In efforts to to help support him, A joint fundraiser was developed where all corners of celebrity stardom pitched in to help Benjamin in his fight. The "Put Your Sad Down" benefit was organized by the Strokes' manager and Wiz Kid Management CEO Ryan Gentles, who joined forces with Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, New York creative agency GŌST with filming by Milliframe.
Countless items from the industries elite were donated to be auctioned off during the entire night. Fans, friends and family poured in to pay homage. Fabrizio Moretti, Devendra Banhart, Alexa Chung & Mom Jeans spun their asses off. Also on-hand Blanda Eggenschwiler and Joe Jonas whom mingled with party-goers and worked to make sure the night went according to plan. Hannibal Buress also took the stage briefly. Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. highlighted the night but nothing overshadowed the goal of providing help for a cause as important as this one.
