Letha Rodman Melchior, RIP

Letha and Dan
Letha

Musician and artist Letha Rodman Melchior lost her battle with cancer two weeks ago at age 55. Her husband, Dan Melchoir, wrote:

I am heartbroken to report that my dear, sweet wife Letha Rodman Melchior passed away today. She fought right up until the end. She was the bravest, most alive person I ever knew. I love you Leth.

In addition to playing bass in Dan Melchior Und Das Menace she also released her own more experimental music, like 2013’s Handbook for Mortals which was released via Siltbreeze. Rest in peace, Letha.

As mentioned, Versus, The Roger Sisters and others were set to play Rough Trade on November 9 as a benefit for Letha. The show will continue as a memorial and fundraiser, also featuring Thalia Zedek Band, Antietam, Cynthia Nelson, and Tara Jane O’Neil (Rodan, Retsin, among others). Tickets are still available and proceeds go to surviving family members.
