Hello and happy Friday! Just dropping a quick post to let you punks, er, blog-readers that tomorrow (Saturday, the 20th) is a big day for BRICKS Pittsburgh, the cancer support/resource organization that my friend Charissa Hamilton-Gribenas founded last year after her husband, Rick, passed away from Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Tomorrow at AIR on the North Side, BRICKS releases its young adults cancer awareness/resource guide. It's been a year in the making, and a lot of local bands are coming out to celebrate: Coal Miner, Code Orange Kids, The Frantic Heart of It, Onodrim, Devil Deer and Shambolish are all playing the show.
It's an important organization and an important cause, and commemorates the life of an important guy (in addition to many others). I'll be there; come out if you can! It starts at 3 p.m. and runs until 10.
