Breast cancer benefit for Jamie Lish


You people are so generous. When someone is in trouble, his or her friends rally, ask the community for help and they get it. Jamie Lish, who's fighting breast cancer, has friends who are holding a big benefit on Sunday, July 26, from 4-10 p.m. at Neurolux to see what they--and you--can do.

A mere $2 gets you in to see Boise bands RevoltRevolt, Actual Depiction, Matt Hopper and the Roman Candles, Trina and the Big Belt Buckle Band and Utah-based Desert Noises, as well as the work of several artists up for auction. And then there's the skateboard.

Someone knows someone who knows the members of Pearl Jam. The grunge-meisters were kind enough to pen their John Hancocks across the deck specifically for this event. One of the benefit organizers called BW a couple of days ago and said that the board had arrived. Not only is it signed by all of the members of Pearl Jam, but it is a special edition PJ board.

The other best part of the benefit? Everybody is asked to wear pink.

Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., 208-343-0886.
