Do You Miss Me?

By: Laurie Gallardo

Today, August 6th, would have been Elliott Smith‘s 50th birthday. The songwriter and multi-instrumentalist struggled with drug addiction and mental illness, both of which affected his work until his untimely death in 2003 at age 34.

Several music artists the world over, including many in our own city, continue to be greatly influenced by Smith’s intensely personal writing. Tonight, local musicians will pay tribute to the man and his music with a show at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River, that will also benefit the SIMS Foundation. SIMS is an Austin-based non-profit that provides access to mental health care for individuals working in the Austin music community.

This evening’s line-up features Moving Panoramas, Chris Simpson (Mountain Time, Mineral), Slomo Drags, Daphne Tunes, and members of Ama and Maryann. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., with a suggested $5-$10 donation upon entry. Very recommended, and thank you for your support.
