SLICE OF LIFE :: 5th Annual Fool’s Brigade This Friday!

I wanted to take a minute to pester everybody:

For the past five years my pal Bruce has been putting on a concert to benefit a local charity, called The Fool’s Brigade Annual Benefit. This year it is “Loving the Alien-A Night of David Bowie”, and is coming up on Friday, April 4th, 2008 to benefit the Metrolina AIDS Project (MAP). The show will be held at The Visulite Theatre, with doors opening at 8pm, and admission is $10. A veritable legion of musicians from 18 Charlotte bands will be playing the songs of David Bowie to benefit MAP, with a selection of over 40 songs to be performed.

Performances can be expected from: Benji Hughes, Buschovski, The Houstons, Snagglepuss, BabyShaker, Bullship, The Virginia Reel, Raised By Wolves, La Chocha Loca, Nitehawk, Trouble Walkers, The Adulterers, The Situationals, Dylan Gilbert, Cockpit, Shane Elks, Josh Burch, Bruce Hazel and some surprise guests! Last year’s “Kinks” show was the best ever, and, judging by what I’ve heard thus far, it will be surpassed pretty handily.

Come out and support a worthy cause; besides, where else are you going to hear five hours of music, much less good music, for the measly price of ten bucks? You’ll be supporting a good cause and actually get something in return: the joy of song! We’ll see you Friday! For more info check out and!

Thus ends the pestering!
