There are a lot of good reasons to go see concerts — music being generally foremost among them. But there's also the supporting of good causes through benefit shows, something that the legendary Bay Area concert promoter Bill Graham was well known for. Graham left an indelible mark on the Bay Area music scene in the years between the early '60s, when he came to San Francisco, and 1991, when he died in a helicopter accident leaving a Huey Lewis and the News concert at the Concord Pavilion. This Saturday, January, 8, would have been his 80th birthday — and to celebrate, the Bill Graham Memorial Foundation is throwing quite a party at the Fillmore.
