Andrew Griffin Benefit

Folks,

Sorry this is so last minute. I just received this and I'm passing it on.

Andrew's been battling cancer for the last year and a half and there's a benefit being held for him tonight. I've known Andrew a while. He's a strong willed dude. He could beat this thing.

Andrew has propped up many a singer songwriter over the years including myself.

Expenses pile up, as expenses do and Andrew and his family could use the support. Here's a chance to do something for Andrew and his family.

—CP

Bay Area Music Community to Host Major Benefit

for INDIE Rock Drumming Legend Andrew Griffin

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (March 1, 2008) – On May 1, the Bay Area music community will be coming together at the Red Devil Lounge to host a major benefit concert for area drummer Andrew Griffin, who is currently battling cancer both physically and financially. Performing at the benefit will be Paul Manousos, Jesse Denatale, Duff Ferguson, Victor Krummenacher, and The Viv All-Stars, with proceeds going to help offset Griffin's ongoing medical expenses.

In September 2006, Griffin was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic colon cancer at the age of 36. He has since had two major surgeries as well as several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Griffin is founder of the East Bay Drummers Studio, a rigorous teaching studio that has trained over man rock and jazz drummers aged 10 to 55 since 1998. He has performed, recorded, and toured as an in-demand session drummer with many influential bands and artists, including a summer 2007 tour of Europe with CAKE.

"Andrew rocks, and we want to support him in any way we can," said somebody important.

Other artists Griffin has worked with include: Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead, Tubes, Todd Rundgren); Victor, Jonathan & Greg of Camper Van Beethoven; Kenny Margolis (keyboards Cracker); Jonathan Richman; Carole Pope (singer Rough Trade); Steven Yerkey; Ralph Carney (saxophone Tom Waits); Nate Query (bassist the Decemberists); Pete Escovedo (Grammy award winning Latin percussionist); Eric Holden (Bassist with Josh Groban, the Bodeans); Bruce Kaphan (of American Music Club); Paul Olguin (Bassist Mazzy Star, Opal); Chris Xefos (of King Missile); Jon Evans (bassist Tori Amos); Duane Jarvis (guitarist & co writer for Lucinda Williams); Kevin White (bassist Susan Tedeschi, Shelby Lynne, Chuck Prophet); Jimmy Prescott (bassist G Love and Special Sauce); Darren Cassidy (bassist Cherry Poppin' Dadies); Herb Geller (alto Sax Jazz legend and Verve receding artist); Steve Fisk (producer Nirvana, Soundgarden, the Posies, Soul Coughing); the legendary Carol Fran (blues singer and vocalist formerly employed by Ray Charles), and many others.

"Unfortunately, my family's savings are extremely depleted, as I've been able to work only sporadically for the last 18 months," says Griffin. "Despite the fact that we have health insurance, we still have to pay a lot of out-of-pocket for various treatment expenses that aren't covered. I am so grateful to my friends in the music community for generously offering their time, talent, and energy to help out."

Griffin is married with a young son and resides in Alameda, CA.

WARTS AND ALL: The Films of Danny Plotnick now available at Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Warts-All-Films-Danny-Plotnick/dp/B000YQT5JW

————————————————————————————————————————

One of San Francisco's most treasured freaks, and a good friend, Danny has been championing Super 8 film for years. "Fat City Death Sled", "I Socky", and "Sugarbutts" just to name a few are among his eighteen lost masterpieces finally available on DVD. Up until now it's been very difficult to see Danny's films. In fact, in the 80s, Plotnick took to the road, projector and films in trunk, screening in bars, warehouses, and once even tacked a sheet up to the wall in some punker's garage in Chico while his parents were out town.

————————————————————————————————————————

WOULD YOU LOVE ME Video by Danny Plotnick

————————————————————————————————————————

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wKH0FyR91M

Here's the Danny Plotnick short film for "Would You Love Me" off Soap and Water in case you missed it. We've got a lot of affection for Anna Nicole Smith. So what if she used a fake name to get methadone? Everyone steals shrimp and everyone lies about it.

This 18 page program lovingly created by Rob Collison includes all the lyrics/credits for Soap and Water (for the cheap bastards who downloaded the album for free). Also biographies of each band member and a guided tour by Chuck of the inspiration for each song. The only thing missing is a photo of Chuck and the band posing in front of their private jet for the cover. We think you'll enjoy it anyway.

The bizarre practice of re-makes is not limited to Hollywood behavior. It's a growing sickness we may never completely understand. In order to survive stories must be retold. The whole story here with pic's: http://www.brink.com/story/2275

The CD with artwork created by hand on letterpress by Bruce Licher of Savage Republic and Scenic fame, is quite literally one of a kind. Only 1000 copies were created and it will remain that way.

WAYLON, ARE YOU PISSED? CD NOW AVAILABLE FROM THE CONNEXTION

http://www.theconnextion.com/index.cfm?ArtistID=174&NoFrame=Yes

——————————————————————————————————

The bizarre practice of re-makes is not limited to Hollywood behavior. It's a growing sickness we may never completely understand. In order to survive stories must be retold. The whole story here with pic's: http://www.brink.com/story/2275

The CD with artwork created by hand on letterpress by Bruce Licher of Savage Republic and Scenic fame, is quite literally one of a kind. Only 1000 copies were created and it will remain that way.

Wherein Peter Blackstock encourages Chuck to jump out a plate glass window.

Du Nord SOLD OUT Carson Daly TONIGHT

Folks,

We taped Carson Daly LAST Thursday but it airs THIS Thursday. We apologize for the confusion but honestly, no one tells us anything. It's all an illusion. And already feeling like the imposters we are, we were so busy getting product applied to our hair, no one ever bothered to ask when the show aired.

But it happened. We came, we saw, we ate candy bars in the green room, somebody's zipper got stuck, we rubbed shoulders with the self-proclaimed "Worlds 17th Greatest Late Night Television Host" and watched from the bandstand as Tom Green stood up and chugged a tall boy. James played my Olympic white 64 Jazzmaster and I rocked Angelo's strat. If that's not enough retro geekiness for you, check out the set—we borrowed some Sonny and Cher era risers from the Ellen warehouse next door when no one was looking. Ridiculous!

Teeth: SINK YOUR TEETH INTO TEETH http://teethmovie.com/film.html

——————————————————————————————————

We seriously doubt that Hilary Swank's latest, the romantic comedy "P.S. I Love You" is on anyone's bucket list, but for those who sat through the unforgivably dull film, that was Chuck's "No Other Love" featured loud and proud. On the other hand, there isn't anything dull about the film "Teeth."

From the NPR site:

Chuck Prophet and his band recently visited NPR's Studio 4A to perform selections from Soap and Water. Between songs, he spoke with Liane Hansen about putting together his songs, as well as his musical upbringing. Prophet grew up in Orange County, Calif., where "if you shook a tree, five guitar players would fall out."
