For Peat's Sake: St. Louis Rallies to Benefit a Friend

Faultfinder currently has a couple of demos available — limited runs of tapes as well as digital downloads — and looks forward to releasing a full-length LP soon. The benefit will be the band's first official performance in St. Louis aside from a last-minute house show last year. For Beasley, the homecoming event turned fundraiser for a friend makes him nostalgic.

"I think this is the first time I've ever played a show in the neighborhood I grew up in. I grew up at Chippewa and Gravois. I don't think I've ever played a show that close to there in my whole life," he says. "Coming from out of town is weird, too. I'll be driving several hours to come back to the neighborhood where I used to ride my bicycle."

In addition to Faultfinder, look forward to sets from Shaved Women, Lumpy & the Dumpers, the Conformists, Life Like, the Funs and Catholic Guilt. SpokedSTL hosts a pre-party at Handlebar, followed by a group ride to the show at the Heavy Anchor. Several raffles, including goods and services from companies including Vintage Vinyl, Iron Age Tattoo and Big Shark Bicycle Company, and even a bake sale, will aid the cause. Music begins at 8 p.m.

"I just want people to have fun," says Henry. "All the bands that are playing are going to be awesome. I want them to dance like I can't. Dance for me, because I won't be able to go full throttle like I normally would."

Oddity Cycles in Estes Park, CO, has donated a gift certificate good for $1,500 towards a custom built frame. Due to the exceptionally generous nature of this donation, it will be available separately through a silent auction.

Because this is a last minute donation, those who cannot make it to the show can send their bids to me via email until midnight tomorrow. (please check the facebook event page for my emai).

Serious bidders only (no jerks).

Thanks to Oddity Cycles for being so rad!!!!

Peat is an awesome dude, I wish him the best (and I wish he didn't move out of our building!)
