LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Numerous former bandmates and colleagues have signed on to perform at a special ALS Benefit Concert celebrating the life of the late Muffs frontwoman Kim Shattuck.

The Coolies included Shattuck as well as s Melanie Vammen (The Pandoras and formerly The Muffs) and Palmyra Delran (solo artist and The Friggs guitarist) and the band will perform live for the first time at the benefit. The band’s debut benefit EP, which contains some of Shattucks’ final recordings, was released last year.

Shattuck passed away from complications of ALS in October after never publicly disclosing that she was battling the disease.
