A Downbeat Lost
Sad news again in the DC rock world this week with the loss of Michael Mariotte. We knew him as the drummer for Tru Fax and the Insaniacs, but Michael was also an award winning activist who worked tirelessly at NIRS to keep this planet in tact. His first wife Lynn Thorp told me she really liked this piece written by Michael's good friend Arun from Antioch days.
A gathering will be held in Michael's honor at Busboys and Poets tomorrow, May 19, in Hyattsville, MD from 4-8 p.m. All are welcome.
Please expect to dance.
