Jackson Rathbone is a seriously good guy

31 12 2009

Jackson Rathbone and his band 100 Monkeys lost good a friend named Spencer Bell suddenly to Adrenal Cancer in 2006. Spencer was very close with the band and also a musician himself. The 100 monkeys created a memorial to their lost friend on the band website through the Spencer Bell Legacy Project.

Now, in a collaborative effort to raise awareness for Adrenal Cancer, 100 Monkeys along with The Stevedores, Tin Tin Can, and Drew and the Medicinal Pen, will travel to Texas in April (no official date set) for the Spencer Bell Legacy concert. 100 Monkeys will also be playing a tribute to Spencer by performing a few of the songs he wrote.

100 Monkeys. Um, if you haven't listened to their music yet you really should. It's damn good.

The Stevedores -lounge/psychedelic

Tin Tin Can - really fucking good. seriously. garage rock/psychedelic

Drew and the Medicinal Pen - acoustic pop folk

FYI a side note: Nothing makes me happier than humbled people.

Details about this concert can be found at asccnow.com. There are auctions being held right NOW at http://www.sblauctions.com and raflle tickets are available.
The auctions for the Spencer Bell Legacy concert allow you to bring one friend to share the fun with if you have the winning bid. So it makes sense for you and your friend to pool your resources to have a higher bid. You can bid on a dinner with the bands, interview with the bands, or meet and greet.
In additon to the auctions, there are items being raffled and you do NOT need to be present to win. One of the items makes me really wish that I am not one of the organizers of this event…..someone will walk away with a signed 100Monkeys band portrait (note that all the bands will have a portrait including The Stevedores!) If you have heard of or been to a Bowling for Soup show, they donated a signed guitar. Simple Plan has donated autographed photos. How about this gem…a Kelly Rathbone one time only designed shirt signed by band. And be sure to check out the designs done for 100Monkeys by Punk You Chucks, because you can have your own unique Spencer Bell Legacy sneakers designed by them. punkyourchucks.com
