I don't know if you had heard the sad news yet,
but Sean Fitzgerald passed away last week. Details for the memorial
show are below.
Subject: Sean Fitzgerald Tribute Show
Hello everyone -
We have lost a friend and a wonderful songwriter in Sean Fitzgerald.
Everyone who knew Sean surely has wonderful memories of him.
There is going to be a Tribute Show for Sean this Saturday, Nov.
29th at PJ's Lager House in Detroit. Sean had set up a gig there
with Tone & Niche, Band B and Much Too Much for that date. It seems
only fitting that we have the show there for that reason and because
he loved PJ's so much. It is also fitting that we pay tribute to him
with an open mic. night. Whether Sean was hosting or attending, he
could be found at an open mic. any given night performing, going on
about politics or promoting local music.
Sean cared about all of us so much, I wonder if he realized how much
the local community cared for him.
Here's the details:
