Will Rock for Food

Last year, the following event took place at that cute, little, VFW Post over on Big Bend, you know, the one with the decommissioned cannon outside. I specifically remember three things: Father Mike Lydon of St. Pius introduced himself to me, though we'd met at least 15 times prior; the bass player of the band Fance was wearing a human-sized banana outfit, to tremendous comedic effect; and I brought cans of food purchased at Jay International, suggesting that someone eventually found a can of really weird beans at the St. Louis Foodbank.

Three things stand out for me from this year's event notice: there will not be a cannon outside of the venue; the drummer of Johnny O & the Jerks was in a writing class of mine at Webster this past semester, how awkward that will be for all of us; and everything in the world is happening this Saturday, June 24, one busy, busy night of activities.

Here's the word from Maplehood Rekkids:
