Gabe’s will be holding a free benefit show for area resident Frank Romero this Saturday. Because, clearly, the most efficient way to raise funds is through underground music. This marks the second show to be held in support of Romero’s cause, the first of which was on November 12.
Donations will be graciously accepted for Romero’s legal fees following an October 17 arrest. His youcaring.com page explains his situation further:
“On Oct. 17th I was arrested for an OWI. My rights were violated in many ways. I was arrested even tho there was no evidence, or alcohol in my system. I can’t afford all of the associated fees/expense without the support of the community. I haven’t even been found guilty and have been drained of all my resources. In order for me to be able to drive and keep working I will need help.”
Acoustic Guillotine, who recently released a new 7-inch entitled “Hurry Up and Finish Dying/Raw Meat and Gunpowder,” whose intense stripped-down brand of metal will be sure to help the audience let out some steam following the holiday. Filling out the bill will be locals Housecoat, Velcro Moxie, and Illinois John Fever.
The show starts at 10 p.m. and will be held on the first floor of Gabe’s.
