Chalk Circle Reunites For Breast Cancer Benefit Concert

By Aaron Brophy

Influential 1980s new wave band Chalk Circle is playing a reunion concert to raise money for the Rethink Breast Cancer organization.


Taking place at Lee's Palace in Toronto, Ont. on March 7, the show has been titled "Be Tracy's Ally" for reasons very close to the band.

The Tracy in question is Tracy Sheridan, owner of Sheridan Skin Studio, and partner to Brad Hopkins, Chalk Circle's bass player. Sheridan lives with metastatic breast cancer, and the concert will celebrate her 50th birthday. Proceeds from the event will go towards Rethink Breast Cancer's MBC Ally Fund.

Started in 2001, Rethink Breast Cancer is focused on providing support, awareness and education to young women under 40 impacted by breast cancer. Some of Rethink's efforts include advocating for better health services related to breast cancer, supporting better testing methods and faster service for those who have a high risk of developing breast cancer.

"Fifty years is a milestone for anyone, but for someone living with metastatic breast cancer it is particularly important," said Chalk Circle lead singer Chris Tait in an email to Samaritanmag. "We want to support Tracy and Brad and to raise awareness for Rethink Breast Cancer’s MBC Ally Fund. In keeping with the theme of the evening 'Be Tracy’s Ally,' we have lots of surprise guest performers joining us. Very humbling to have colleagues drop what they are doing and offer to perform! I love my community!" — Continue reading on the Samaritanmag website.

Sean Combs Sued by Music Producer for Sexual Assault, Sex Trafficking in Sprawling Complaint

The wide-ranging lawsuit, filed by Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones Jr., accuses Combs and several of his associates of various forms of misconduct.

A music producer who says he worked on Sean “Diddy” Combs’ 2023 album The Love Album: Off the Grid is accusing the hip-hop mogul of sexual assault and harassment, sex trafficking and various other forms of misconduct in a sprawling lawsuit filed Monday (Feb. 26).

In the complaint, filed by plaintiff Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones Jr. in New York federal court, the producer accuses Combs of “groping and touching” his anus and trying to groom him into engaging in sexual acts with Combs and other individuals, including Love Album producer Steven Aaron Jordan (a.k.a. Stevie J) and a cousin of Combs’ ex-girlfriend Yung Miami (named as a Jane Doe defendant). He also claims that Combs “forced” him to “solicit sex workers,” some of whom were underage, as well as to “perform sex acts to the pleasure of Mr. Combs.”
