Why should you go to this show?
This one hits home for me as gastrointestinal issues have plagued most of my 31 year span on this planet. While I’m fortunate to not be affected by Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis directly, I like many Americans, suffer from some form of their brother and sister diseases. Like most Gastrointestinal diseases, Crohn’s & Colitis may currently be manageable, but are unfortunately without a cure.
That’s why you should go to shit show! Your door cover & donations will go towards searching for the cure! All proceeds from the show go to The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases.
You can get in by donating a $5 or more at the door ($10 suggested). Your admission not only goes to helping out the cause, but towards a night of great local music. This bill holds some great local talent including a couple newer acts to the area.
Zip-Tie Handcuffs are coming back to their O’Brien’s Pub stomping ground. These guys are also currently in the studio working on a new album! Possibility of hearing some new songs? You’ll just have to find out!
Melodic punks, The Hideout are also sharing the stage. I was fortunate to play a gig with them at Cantab recently. These guys absolutely rock and bring a so cal style to the area that is lacking in most of our local punk scene.
The Digs, I’m going to try not to be too self serving here as this is my band. We play our own style of rock-punk with some pretty diverse influences across our members. We will play rock music for you, you might sing along, we will all have fun.
Loud acoustic punker Patrick Simas will be helping to kick the night off. He puts off an energy that trumps most live performances I’ve seen over the past few years. His nitty gritty acoustic punk rock and dedication to his art form is hard to trump.
Nick Cliché of Ronald Vegan will be opening up the night. Ronald Vegan was originally set up to be one of the full bands for the evening, but the loss of their dear friend and drummer, Joshua Dale Deacon, has hit them hard. Come support Nick and the rest of the event in dedication of Josh’s memory and the cause that Ronald Vegan as a whole set out to help accomplish.
This show is being run by Ashley Tarbet and Nick Cliché. Ashley is running a Half Marathon Fundraiser for the foundation. To donate to the run, please visit http://www.active.com/donate/jamestownNE14/ashleyt
