hey san franscisco: kidney rock!

rogue wave at bumbershoot
If you'll happen to be in San Francisco at the end of the month, might I recommend pointing your web browser to roguewavemusic.com? There, you can buy tickets for a star-studded benefit concert featuring performances by Rogue Wave, Ben Gibbard, Matthew Caws (Nada Surf), Ryan Miller (Guster), John Vanderslice, Daniel Handler as emcee, and "other special guests". You'll get an evening of great entertainment and Pat (Rogue Wave's incredibly nice, crazy-haired, drummer) will get money for his kidney transplant. Everyone wins.

Now, listen to this Buddy Holly cover and try to not sing along. It's impossible!

I suspect it's something like that. It would suck if he had to quit the band to not make enough money to qualify for assistance.

I hope things work out for you, too! Maybe you should start a rock band, get famous, and have a benefit show.
