JoeJoe Fiorentino, a longterm member of the NYC underground music community who played bass in Artanker Convoy, as well as with James Murphy, Daughter, and more passed away unexpectedly November 15. Tonight (12/5) his friends are throwing a party at the Gutter in Williamsburg (200 N 14th St) called "The Joe 'Fashion Night Out' benefit & memorial Bash." It will feature live performances by Artanker Convoy, Hamish Kilgour, Fly Ashtray, The Jewish, Mossy Pine, Clay Dots and Jonathan Toubin will be the night's DJ. The event is free but donations will be taken at the door that will go to his two kids. Additionally, there will be a silent auction tonight to raise more money for his family.

R.I.P. Joe, and flyer for the show is below.

There will be a BBQ stand set up out front - buy beers & cocktails at the back bar (in the "spare room") where the bands are playing - all proceeds from the BBQ stand and the back bar go to the family. R.I.P. Joe "Fashion" Fiorentino.

I met Joe for the first time the day before he died when he came to my synagogue to discuss business. I remarked to Martin that he was the nicest, sweetest most
caring professional I met recently and I could tell from the 15 minutes we talked that he was special.
Martin then told me the sad news and I want to extend my sincerest sympathy to his family and friends."Only the good die young"
