Hi! My band, the VelAff, is participating in a benefit show at Reggie's on May 16.
The show is a benefit for Justin, a bartender at The Sovereign at Granville and Broadway. He was stabbed/mugged and Reggie's is putting on a benefit to help cover medical costs.

Cover is $8, but it goes towards a good cause!

P.S. I am the mefite formerly known as baxter_ilion, if that makes a difference...

Like the idea of a benefit for a local bartender, but getting down to the south side on a weeknight is a tough sell. Best I can do is a Maybe.

Hey weird we were actually asked to play this, but we're already booked at a benefit for the same dude that Friday at Morseland. Justin's been a friend of ours for years.

Justin's a super great guy. I'm going to try my best to be there.

kaz, I think there have been a few benefits for Justin, and will probably be more. So, no pressure on that front for making it.

eviscerator - that's weird that you were potentially going to play this show. We ended up taking another band's spot when one of their members got sick. Random.

yay!! Hope to see you there eamon!

Just got home from work-- I don't see me making it down to Reggie's tonight. Break a leg, though!
