Fingertrick, a Memphis-area rock band, comprised primarily of former or current Christian Brothers High School students, has announced that it intends to contribute all of its earnings from Friday night’s Beale Street performance to the family of Andrew Svgdik. Svgdik, himself a CBHS grad, was crossing a Chattanooga street last week when he and a friend were struck by a passing vehicle. Svgdik was killed. His friend, Kelsey Butler was injured. Witnesses say Svgdik pushed Butler out of harm's way, saving her life.
Svgdik was 19 years old and had been enrolled as a freshman at UT Chattanooga.
Christopher Pietrangelo, lead guitarist and singer for Fingertrick, attended CBHS with Svgdik. His younger brother, Patrick, the band’s bassist, is a freshman there.
The Fingertrick concert, which features several other local opening acts, starts at 8:00 p.m. at the New Daisy on Beale Street. Tickets are $10.
