MATT DRISCOLL: TIME TO RALLY, TACOMA >>>
Tonight the first of two benefits for Andrew Foard, former frontman of Durango 95, will go down at Hellâ€™s Kitchen. The show tonight is 21+ and features www.myspace.com/girltrouble ">Girl Trouble, www.myspace.com/idefypunk ">I Defy, www.myspace.com/dirtyknockers ">Dirty Knockers, and www.myspace.com/sokandthefaggots ">Sok and the Faggots. Tomorrowâ€™s show is all ages, starts at 5 p.m., and features the www.myspace.com/thecutelepers ">Cute Lepers, www.myspace.com/spacecreatures3k ">Space Creatures from the Year 3000, www.myspace.com/freakouts ">the Freakouts and www.myspace.com/toxicpeanuts ">Toxic Peanuts.
Getting into either of these shows will cost you a minimum $5 donation, but the money goes to a truly worth cause. Andrew Foard fell into a diabetic coma on his long awaited 21st birthday, and has been hospitalized at St. Josephâ€™s since. The medical bills are mounting, and Andrew and his mom can use all the help they can get.
If youâ€™re unable to attend either of the benefit shows, which will also include raffles to raise further money, Andrewâ€™s friends have set up a Myspace page for people to find other ways to donate and wish Andrew well. www.myspace.com/getwellandrew ">Check it out.
And, if at all possible, check out the benefits for Andrew this weekend. Foard is a cherished member of Tacomaâ€™s scene. Letâ€™s fucking rally for him.
