Benefit and Life Celebration of Micah Chappell
Micah Chappell, drummer for the Santa Fe band Chango, died this morning. He'd been suffering a terminal disease.
Friends and family already had been planning a benefit show for him and his wife Chris Trusnovic-Chappell, who in addition to the emotional stress, has been under financial strain because of Micah's illness.
The above poster was created by Sam Haozous last night, obviously before Micah died. Now the show is a benefit for Chris and life celebration for Micah. It's Wednesday, Oct. 18 at The Underground (the basement of Evangelo's), 200 W. San Francisco St., in downtown Santa Fe. The show starts at 9 p.m.
Playing there will be The Imperial Rooster from Espanola and The Dildonts (who I haven't heard, though I love their name.) Also there will be a silent auction offering the works of Santa Fe artists.
In addition to Wednesday's event, there is a Go Fund Me campaign to help Chris.
Try to make this show.
