A Joelfest thank you

About two weeks ago, Joel Hutcheson, owner of Static Age Records and co-owner of T.V. Eye, discovered that he needed a very costly spine surgery. With the support of many local businesses, a benefit dubbed "Joelfest" was held on Saturday, May 23, at Izzy's new location in West Asheville. With raffle donations from many of Asheville's finest restaurants, shops, salons and other businesses, and music by 10 bands from Asheville and beyond, it was a huge success!

Many thanks to Zambra, Hot Stuff Tattoo, Adorn, Flipside, Hip Replacements, Liquid Dragon, Orange Peel, Honeypot, Heiwa, Mellow Mushroom, Asheville Pizza, Rosetta's, The Admiral, Harvest Records, Voltage, Push, Short Street, Barley's, Doc Chey's, L'eau de Vie, Firestorm, Emerald Lounge, Blue Ridge To Go, Shaolin Kung Fu, N.C. Stage Co. and many others for your overwhelming support!

Also, thanks to Witch Hunt, Ahleuchatistas, Soft Opening, Ventricles, Flies Around It, Doom Ribbons, Sunshine SS, Kakistocracy, Resistor and Space Weed for providing musical entertainment.

This couldn't have been possible without the hard work of Amber, Chris, Mac, Sean, Jason, Eric, Circe, Ross, Rose and Tony, who helped the whole day (and weeks prior) go smoothly! Considering the current economic situation, with many people struggling to make ends meet, it was amazing to see the community come together to help a good friend in need. Thank you so much!
