I just found out that my friend and ex-Guitar Center Co-worker, has just been diagnosed with Acute Leukemia. :(
He has a baby, and a wife. He has an amazing band called Kneel Before Zod. He's so talented, so young. They are doing a fundraiser for him at the Fat Cat. Please help, at least repost the show info if you can. Word of mouth makes a world of difference.
Just last week a dear friend Mike Larue, of the band Kneel Before Zod, was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia... For those of you who do not know Mike and/or his family, he is one of the nicest, most down to earth person we have ever had the fortunate opportunity to meet and we are proud to call him a friend. Mike, an incredible musician, has always lended an ear to our music and has supported the band through all of our changes. Just last month Mike took the time to come out to a rehearsal and freeze his ass off while we showed off a few new tunes for him. The next day he graciously offered to be our guitarist if we ever had to fire Jason or Rob! :-)
Mike and his family are in need of all the love and support they can receive. No battle, no matter how big or small, should be fought alone and I want to make sure that Mike and his family know the type of support that Better Left Unsaid friends, family, and fans can give! We would appreciate it if you added Kneel Before Zod as a friend and leave comments to Mike for him to read.
You can help!
Better Left Unsaid will be donating all proceeds from the January 29th show at the Fat Cat Music House (930 11th Street Modesto, CA) to Mike and his family. The show will cost a mere $5 at the door and monetary donations will be accepted throughout the night as well. Mike's band Kneel Before Zod will be playing the show, video taping it, and delivering it to Mike for his own viewing pleasure :-) I would love nothing more than to see a packed house for this event, proving that a community of musicians and fans can come together and support a Father, Husband, Band Mate, Musician, and our friend Mike Larue.
The lineup is as follows :
FallenSleepless : 7:00 - 7:30
Colma: 7:50 - 8:20
Hammerface: 8:40 - 9:10
Kneel Before Zod: 9:30 - 10:00
Better Left Unsaid: 10:20 - 10:50
Change your plans, bring all your friends, change a life...
We hope to see you at the show. If you are under 21 or can't make the show, please post this as a bulletin so that all of your friends can see! Thank you for your support! BLU
