Old Thrashers reunion show marks seven years of rockin’, rollin’, and donatin’

Check out the latest from Stickman on Bandcamp.

The seventh annual Old Thrashers benefit show is coming up this Saturday at The Mill. The show begins at 8 p.m., costs $6 and boasts a meaty lineup that includes Stickman, ConeTrauma, Baggi Spandex, Wax Cannon, Acoustic Guillotine and Illinois John Fever.

The event was initially a celebration for Kylie Buddin’s (of HOTT and Stickman) 40th birthday, as well as a reunion of sorts for the punk scene of the late ’80s and early ’90s. This “rock n’ roll extravaganza” has grown now into a yearly benefit for United Action for Youth (UAY), an organization that provides a wealth of services to kids in the community, such as music lessons and counseling.

Last year, they were able to donate more than $500 to UAY — a remarkable amount, and all of which benefits kids who could someday make their own punk scene here. It’s not often that you can actually feel like you’re doing something good for your community while also seeing some intense local bands, so take this opportunity to do just that Saturday night at The Mill.
