Saturday: Lydia Loveless, Brujas del Sol, Love Culture, Woosley Band, The Grateful Lovers, L.O.C.K. play birthday bash/fundraiser at KOBO

Life can change in an instant. Last July, I asked an old friend of mine, Brian Hake (Kopaz singer/guitarist), and his Van Halen cover band (Van Haken), to perform at my 40th birthday bash. The band blew the roof off KOBO putting on a show that some might argue was better than the real thing.

Then, in January, life got real – Brian was diagnosed with Leukemia. By enduring multiple chemotherapy treatments at the James Cancer Center at Ohio State Univerisity, Brian’s cancer is now in remission and he’s continuing to be proactive in his fight.

I invite you, Donewaiting readers, to join me for the second annual Chip Midnight 40th birthday bash, at KOBO (2590 N. High St.) which is not only an excuse to get together a bunch of bands I really dig to cover songs I really like, but, more importantly, is an opportunity to help raise money for the Hake-n-Roll Pelotonia team which will be riding 100 miles earlier that day to support the James Cancer Center at the Ohio State University. A portion of each $7 cover will be donated to the Hake-n-Roll team.

Free download from LIONS – today only!

Matt Drenik and company (aka LIONS) have a new EP that they’re pimping across the UK as they play a week’s worth of dates with Monster Magnet and Karma to Burn. Because the EP isn’t available in the U.S. yet, they’re making it available to download for free, but only for today (November 30). So quit wasting time reading this and hop on over to the band’s ReverbNation site. The first 6 songs in the player have a blue arrow that you can click to download the tracks. Highly, highly recommended if you’re a fan of Local H, Monster Magnet, Soundgarden, Rage Against the Machine, and The Toadies.

You may recognize LIONS from their track “Metal Heavy Lady” which is featured on Guitar Hero 3.
