The Local Music Scene Comes Together to Celebrate the Life of Johnathan Gogoleski

If you grew up "going to shows" and listening to local music you met a lot of new people all the time. You didn't just hang out with the kids that went to your school, you hung out with all the kids in the area that were into music. Those "kids" become your second family, the music brings you together and forms a bond that can be very hard to break. When someone from the "scene" is in trouble, we come together, we throw a show and we make sure that they get what they need. We also come together when we lose someone from the music scene. We use music to celebrate their life and we come together to honor our fallen friend.

Next week the local music scene will be coming together to celebrate the life & music of Johnathan Gogoleski. Three bands that Johnathan played with will be coming together to celebrate what would have been the musician's 30th birthday. They will also be raising money for The Suicide Loss Foundation, a local charity that supports those who lose someone to suicide. The Magical ElixirsThe Consequences, and All About The Fire will be playing live sets and all the money earned will be donated to charity. The goal of this event is to celebrate the life of someone special and to raise money to help others in the future.

The benefit show is scheduled to to take place on Friday, February 1st at The Loving Touch. Tickets to attend are $10 at the door and in advance and doors for the event are at $8 pm. If you would like to know more about The Suicide Loss Foundation click here
