From an article in The Courier News, Sept. 12, 1987:

Is downtown dead? It was at least for one night, as Village Voice columnist Michael Musto and a few of his friends gathered last Monday at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park to stage a benefit for the Peter Ho Foundation of St. Michael's Hospital, a fund devoted to AIDS education and research. Several hundred dollars were raised by the appearance of They Might Be Giants, The Cucumbers, Carry Nation and The Whirling Dervishes, with The Cukes' midnight set the show highlight.
