Robin from Tannis Root/Kung Fu was womanning the merch table last night at the Cradle and told me that she had about $700 in her pocket from t-shirt sales and another couple hundred from previous shirt sales. KICK ASS! Derek Powers told me that Glenn had about 200 folks at the 506 the night before for the WXYCy Dance Party. W00T!
I second Hep's evaluation of the show. Thanks to all the bands for their participation and sheer rock quality. (I think Brian Quast is the ass-kicking Polvo drummer we're looking for here. Brian. Quast. Not a match. The board goes back.--Thanks to Cantwell for that info.)
Cy was there with his folks. Frank and Susan stuck it out until the bitter end! I was impressed. Thank goodness for the ear-plug industry. Cy said his radiation treatments end on Tuesday. He'll get an MRI shortly thereafter to see what's what, and then the doctors and Cy will decide what to do next. He said he'd try to let us know what happens. I asked how he was feeling, and Cy said he's not been feeling sick in a week or so, so the docs might up his chemo meds. He's such a tough-ass that I can hardly stand it.
Thanks again to everyone who helped out and showed up and rocked it and showed support. It was an amazing night!
