tonight there is a benefit show for the che cafe. the che needs to make an insurance payment or it will be shut down, and we can’t let that happen!!! now, if you have never been to the che cafe, it’s an activist venue and it’s pretty magical - you’re walking through the ucsd campus and all of a sudden you feel like you’re in a cabin in the middle of the woods. even fox news (yep, you heard right) called it a landmark. the first time i went there i saw pretty girls make graves with my friend jared, with whom i have long lost contact. jared, wherever you are, THANK YOU.
i’ve been to the che countless times throughout the years, seeing such a range as gasoline please and the plot to blow up the eiffel tower to minus the bear and q and not u to mr. billy corgan! i can’t even tell you what it meant to me one night when a cursive show was sold out but i hung around and was let in for free when a few people left - being that close to tim kasher when i was 16 was worth more than anything.
so come out tonight! there’s now-big-time-boys crocodiles, the heavy hawaii dudes, and, my personal favorite (yes, i’m biased, but not only are they all great guys, they make amazing music), plateaus! on a laurasaurus-related-note, i made plateaus some buttons.
please check out the che cafe benefit tumblr page - the show tonight is not the only effort by any means. here is also some news regarding this: city beat, reader (from the union-tribune), and fox.
see you there!
