The thing with Favorites was taken care of. All the bands that played last Friday night were paid in full. Those who cancelled at the last minute were ridiculed as the pieces of shit that they are. :-) Nate made everything right. Good for him. There's hope for that place.
Finding out about people you know dying in the pages of Spin magazine is a bit unsettling, to say the least.
Celso Chavez, Possum Dixon Guitarist and Key L.A. Player, Dead at 44
Yeah, I met him through Trash Can School, who were one of the coolest bands to come out of that magical L.A. Scene we were all a part of at one time back in the 90's. He played drums in Black Angels Death Song too, which is what Trash Can School evolved into, but I didn't really dig them. Too Artsy for me. Phooey. Celso was just a really nice guy who died way too young of something which seems so preventable - complications from pneumonia. Who dies of pneumonia nowadays? Fuck. RIP Celso. I'm proud to say you were a Friend of mine. Vaya con Dios Sir.
