Gallapalooza, Tomorrow: Help Amy Marie Out

And since we’re kind of on the subject of helping out good people… Tomorrow night (Wednesday, August 24th), there’s a cool, definitely worthwhile benefit show over at Warehouse Live called Gallapalooza, meant to raise money to help a longtime Warehouse employee named Amy Marie Shields be able to afford some very necessary gallbladder surgery.

I don’t know Amy personally, but I’ve definitely run into her some night at the Warehouse, it sounds like — she scans the tickets, checks IDs, run the Twitter account and FB page, and does all kinds of other stuff around the place. From everything I hear, she’s good people in need of some lifesaving help in a very short amount of time.

Photog/scene fixture Mark C. Austin has created an IndieGogo account to help raise funds, and he’s promised to match the first $1000 donated, which is massive in itself. So you can donate there or you can head on over to the show tomorrow night and chip in a measly $5. The Warehouse is reportedly putting 100% of the proceeds into the fund for Amy’s surgery.

Of course, some cool people have donated their time & talent, including the ever-cool Tyagaraja, paisley retro-rocker Chase Hamblin (both solo), new-but-already-acclaimed musician Darrin Love, alternarock young’uns Mosby, and promising dirge-metallers Sleeping Ancient.

Here’s the schedule:

    8:30-9:00 — Sleeping Ancient
    9:15-9:45 — Tyagaraja
    10:00-10:30 — Chase Hamblin
    10:45-11:15 — Darrin Love
    11:30-??? — Mosby

Help spread the word, too, any way you can — you can retweet Mark A.’s tweet about the show, right here:!/mcaphoto/status/104623489297825793. Let’s make this happen, y’all.
