A somber start to Boston Accents tonight, as we pour one out for DUSTIN HENGST of DAMONE, who passed away last week at the age of 39. The talented drummer was hospitalized for a few weeks with liver problems, and had been battling illness most of his life. The details and band reaction are in my On The Download post from Friday, but here we'll celebrate the music of Damone, which released three awesome records between 2002 and 2008, toured the world, and made a mark on Boston rock.
