WHAT: The Sean Costello Memorial Fund for Bipolar Research will hold its fourth annual celebration of the life of Sean Costello on Saturday, April 14th, 2012 at Northside Tavern, located at 1058 Howell Mill Rd NW, Atlanta, GA. This year's lineup features original members of Sean Costello's band (Matt Wauchope, Terrence Prather, Melvin Zachery, Aaron Trubic, Paul Campanella) with special guests such as Jon Liebman, Oliver Wood, Joe McGuiness, Mudcat, Andrew Black, Truett Lollis, Art Holliday, Mike Bourne, and more!  Opening the show will be members of Chicago Joe's Rockin' Blues Camp.  Doors open at 6:30pm and entertainment will follow from 7:30pm - 2am. Tickets are only $10 at the door! Donations are tax deductible according to IRS guidelines.

This year's concert will also celebrate the release of Sean Costello At His Best - Live, released in November of 2011.  This CD is a compilation of live tracks recorded around the world.  "At His Best - Live is a collection vibrating with the old-soul blues brought to life by a man too young to know them so well...Make no mistake, to anyone that knew Costello or enjoyed his music, this album is a memorial, and a fine one at that. But every song here could read like a course in blues history, too. There is nothing gratuitously prolonged or sad about this collection; it's simply a great set of live music that, unfortunately, Costello never got to see released. And yes, that's sad." -

The Sean Costello Memorial Fund for Bipolar Research is uniquely focused on the needs of musicians with bipolar disorder. The Fund supports and conducts research on bipolar disorder and creativity while promoting awareness, providing education, and serving as a resource for these musicians and their support systems in order to foster acceptance, functioning and health.
