Next Wednesday we will be playing a live acoustic show in Alexandria, Virginia. The show is in support of a fund raiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I didn’t realize until yesterday that the day we will be playing is actually the one year anniversary of my brother Jamie’s death from cancer.
I cannot think of a better way to honor his memory – an amazing musician – than playing live and supporting this cause. Jamie had synovial sarcoma which is a soft tissue cancer, whereas Leukemia & Lymphoma Society support blood cancers – but hey – any progress made to eradicate ONE of these bastards is a win against all of them!
Date: Wednesday, June 16, 2010
Time: 6:00pm – 10:00pm
