Benefit for Mr. Blues - This Thursday night at HNS

Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

Benefit for Mr. Blues - This Thursday night at HNS

Postby droidsattack » Wed Mar 14, 2007 3:03 pm

Saw this in the Isthmus' print calander already, but I don't see it here. Come on out and show some love for our feisty friend at one of the area's most beloved non-smoking establishments, The High Noon Saloon.

Seriously though, much respect to Mr. Blues who took over ownership of The Anchor Inn and gave our ailing music scene a much needed booster shot in the ass after the tragic loss of O'Cayz Corral. Whether you love him or hate him, it's hard to deny that the music scene owes a debt to Blues. His tenacity and inability to accept any bullshit kept that bar alive well past the expected expiration date. He fought a loosing battle head on for the benefit of local rock, and for that I am eternally impressed and thankful. Those who have witnessed Shotdown, The Drunk Drivers, or any of the area's up-and-coming acts of the time on his stage knows exactly what I'm talking about. Infamy.

Mr. Blues benefit show, featuring:

The Skintones - Rock scene veterans
Straight to Audio - Rock scene problems

Thursday, March 15th
The High Noon Saloon
$5.00, 9:30

Come on out, and raise a can of Pabst in honor of our friend.

Is the benefit for his medical expenses or his business losses?

I echo Fat's question: For those of us not in the know, what's the "why" behind this benefit?

Every time I see the title of this thread I hear that damn 'Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!' song in my head. Ugh.

"For the benefit of Mr. Blues
There will be a show tonight with lots of booze
The Droidsattacks will all be there
Sporting big pink mohawk hair, what a scene"

I can't go on. It's too painful.
