Thanks to all of you friends and fellow bloggers. For those of you here in L.A. the benefit is going to be OCT 18th (Thurs.) at the ECHO. It will help buffer the blow from the "other half" of my operation- that my health insurance isn't covering. My actual surgery is OCT 11th. Thankfully I have awesome creative friends who all offered to contribute time and talent. Becky STARK and LAVENDER DIAMOND are playing, along with The Winter Flowers, Blank BLue, Animal Magik, plus special surprise guests...maybe ENTRANCE. The Dublab guys are putting it all together. Hit -N- Run will be silkscreening my artwork onto t-shirts the whole night for guests. I think there will be an art auction that night scheduled too. I am getting a lot of my artwork back from various shows.
Don't worry if you are not here on the WEST COAST, we are also planning to start up some auctions on ebay of artwork, t-shirts, things and donated music memorobilia. I will be posting updates for those here, so if you want to help, you can bid on some of my crazy accessories and vintage. I may try to set up a paypal account specially for this event too.
After researching the recovery time of this particular operation- you will all be comforted in knowing that I will be trapped like the movie MISERY in my bed for 3-6 weeks and therefore writing posts hourly...ha ha. I heard that you don't feel completely recovered til week 10 or 12!! WHAT?
I may get a lot of reading and drawing in.
here's a look at the musical acts:
