Sluggo! Ball @ Emos Austin on Friday October 26th



If you're in Austin, please be there if you can. Not only will there be a fantastic myriad of musicians in the line up (including the infamous goth puppet metal band Lucid Dementia) but the show is for a great cause. With my father's recent death from cancer and the lingering battles I'm still fighting with MD Anderson and the insurance companies, this benefit hits home with me.

Nick West, founder of the innovative Austin fanzine Sluggo! is undergoing treatment for prostrate cancer. He's currently in Germany subjecting himself to the best treatments possible...and as you can imagine accruing a ridiculous amount of debt (damn you, US Health Care!). The show tomorrow night at Emo's will be to help raise money for this amazing visionary who has been devoted to the Austin music scene since the late 70's.

I'll be working the Lucid Dementia merch booth, so come by and say hi. Costumes are highly encouraged (including prizes) and the music will be fantastic. Doors open at 9:00pm and cover is $10.

No. I'm not performing yet. Probably not until the new album is out. At the moment, I'm just rehearsing with LD...and so far, I've only been to 4 rehearsals. Too early.
