Come out to Red 7 on Friday 6/25 for this benefit! I'll be DJ'ing inside (in the free room) while the benefit for Alex Arizpe happens outside! Here are the bands/times:
LJ All Stars: 8:30 - 9pm
Pretty Boys: 9:15 - 9:45
The Tie That Binds: 10 - 10:30pm
Latch Key Kids: 10:45 - 11:15pm
Blueprint: 11:30pm - 12:15am
Shaft El Groupo de Rock: 12:30 - ??
The benefit is for Alex Arizpe, alumnus of old Houston bands Badger, The Tie That Binds, Sore Loser, and Beast (among others), all of which have been featured on this blog. Alex was diagnosed with cancer in 2008, and this benefit show (as well as one the following day in Houston) were organized to help offset the costly treatment. It's definitely a worthy cause if you're a fan of any of the stuff we've posted on this blog. If you're a facebooker, RSVP for the Austin show HERE and/or the Houston show HERE.
I'll be spinning records from the era and other favorites - hopefully getting Texas Punk Treasure Chest co-contributor James to join me. Please come out!
