Ten years ago, local musician Christopher Saathoff, a collaborator with Alex White and member of Chin Up Chin Up, was tragically hit and killed by a drunk driver on Western Avenue while leaving the Empty Bottle, and tonight that same club is hosting a celebration of his life and legacy. The show, headlined by a solo set from White, is a benefit for the Christopher Saathoff Foundation, a charitable organization opened up in his name to help children in need across the world. On top of a stacked bill of excellent locals like Brokeback and DJ STV SLV, the show also features raffles and prizes from a bunch of local shops and restaurants, including Big Star, Reckless Records, Dark Matter, and Vic’s Drum Shop; there’s also a chance to win free passes to Riot Fest later this month.
The show starts at 9 PM and costs $10. The Sweeps, Brokeback, Mount Saint Helens, and DJ STV SLV open. Further donations are obviously accepted, and please people, stop fucking drinking and driving.
