I didn't know her, myself, but the tragic death of local artist and Houston Photography Center staffer Leigh Boone has rocked the local arts/music community here pretty hard -- it's awful to see somebody taken so young and in such a bizarre, freak-accident kind of way.
Now, if you want to help out with the family's expenses (because yes, even though you're gone, somebody generally has to foot the bill), you can help out on ChipIn here; just donate what you can. Beyond that, there was a benefit deal scheduled for tonight up at Poison Girl, and while I haven't been able to find out for sure if it's still going on, heck, I'd head on over there anyway. The info's on the flyer to the right.
In a few weeks, as well, the April 25th installment of Danseparc (at Numbers, I believe) will be dedicated to Leigh and will be a benefit of sorts to help ouy her family. Apparently the scheduled Pretty in Pink theme will still be in effect, since it was one of her favorite movies -- wear pink, donate money, you know the deal.
Condolences to all Leigh's friends & family; I'm really, truly sorry for your loss. Damn shame...
