Primus at Roseland (more by Kurt Christensen)
Ahoy there all,Here's to hoping for some good news for Little Matthew and the Primus frontman soon. Head to the link above for more details or if you can help.
I just wanted to thank everyone for the support my nephew Mathew has received over the last year. It has been amazing how many folks have put forth the effort to help my brother and his family. Unfortunately, just at a time when he's learning to walk, little Matthew has had a major relapse and is back at Stanford Medical Center for treatment. To see what this little guy has gone through these last twelve months has been heart wrenching and to think he has to go through it again is just beyond comprehension.
Matthew will undergo an intense round of chemotherapy this month in the hope of getting his blood levels back to a status where he can receive a bone marrow transplant. As far as a donor, we have decent options within the family but there could potentially be a better match out there somewhere. If anyone is inclined, check out: www.marrow.org for information on how to see if they are good match for Little Matthew or others in the same terrible situation. It is a simple procedure to test and the program has saved a lot of lives.
Thanks again for the support,
In the meantime, Primus will try and move toward a sense of normalcy with a string of European dates what will take place after a smaller-than-usual-show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 2/8. Tickets for the Brooklyn show go on AMEX presale on 1/11 at noon and regular sale on Friday.
Primus are also scheduled to play Summer Camp Music Festival (not to be confused with Summer Camp the band who just announed some shows) in Chillicothe, IL from May-25th-27th. The three day festival will feature a bevy of jammy all-stars (moe., Umphrey's Mcgee, etc) as well as an appearance from Gogol Bordello who recently played NYC twice: Dec 30th and Dec 31st. Primus played their own pair of New Year's Eve shows in San Francisco.
