Blueprint reuniting for Alex Arizpe Benefit shows

It's been announced that there will be new benefit shows for Alex Arizpe, alumnus of Houston bands Badger, The Tie That Binds, Sore Loser, and Beast. When Alex was diagnosed with cancer in 2008, benefit shows were held in both Houston and Austin featuring a reunion of The Tie That Binds which helped raised money to offset the obviously costly treatment which Alex requires. 2010 brings the need for a second round of benefit shows, so his friends are once again stepping up to help.

The 2010 benefit show dates and lineups have been solidified, and both are worthy of your support:

June 25, 2010 - Austin, TX
Benefit for Alex Arizpe with:
Blueprint (reunion)
The Tie That Binds
Latch Key Kids
Pretty Boys
LJ All-Stars
Shaft
@ Red 7

June 26, 2010 - Houston, TX

All of the bands Alex has been in have been posted on this blog, as well as the bands playing the benefit. If you've downloaded them, if you're already a fan, or if you just want to contribute, please help out by attending one of the benefit shows if you're in Houston or Austin this summer.
