A Black Night - farewelling Joe

Joe Black, guitarist for Claymore Minds and a former member of other bands around town, died last Friday when he fell down an elevator shaft in his apartment building on Casco Street; his body was found the following day. Portland police believe his death was accidental.

Tonight at 6 pm, there will be a memorial gathering for him at Norm's Bar and Grill, at 617 Congress St. And Sunday there will be a memorial concert at 8 pm at Geno's, 625 Congress St, with Claymore Minds, Covered in Bees, Cryptic Overcast, and Breeding Strength. The cover's $5, with proceeds going to his family.
