Aimee Mann Benefit Show

Aimee Mann is kicking off 2011 by putting on a benefit show for her drummer who recently suffered a heart attack.

John “Huggy Bear” Sands is still recovering in the hospital after suffering a heart attack Nov. 15.

On Tuesday the Facebook page for “Team Huggy” reported that Sands was moved to the Mini-ICU unit. The update noted that was a “huge step forward” in the drummer’s recovery.

Team Huggy is raising funds to help with the costs of Sands’ medical care and expenses.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at $40 plus applicable fees.
