I thought I'd tell you all about the event I've organised to mark the 5th anniversary of the passing of the greatest songwriter of our generation.
Tue 21st Oct '08
'A Fond Farewell: A Tribute To Elliott Smith 1969-2003'
Lewisham Fox & Firkin
All playing sets of Elliott / Heatmiser songs.
Between sets DJs will be playing music by artists that either influenced Elliott or were influenced by him, so expect lots of Big Star, Neil Young, Grandaddy, The Kinks, Quasi, The Beatles and Beck amongst others...
Entry is FREE - however we are looking to raise as much money as possible for the Elliott Smith Memorial Foundation, a charity that works in conjunction with a number of others such as Free Arts, to help victims of child abuse. So anyone coming along is urged to make a donation to this great charity.
It all kicks off around 8.30pm.
I hope lots of you can make it along.
