Black Tusk holding memorial for Jonathan Athon
Black Tusk will hold both a public and a private memorial service on Saturday for bandmate Jonathan Athon, who passed away last weekend following a motorcycle accident. Here's the official word:
We will be gathering from 4-8pm this Saturday, Nov. 15th in Franklin Square (across from Vinnies and Ghosttown Tattoo) to remember Athon. This is for fans and family and friends and anyone who ever crossed paths with Athon or shared a conversation with him. Ghosttown will be doing memorial tattoos during this time period, with proceeds going to offset medical costs. Afterwards at 8pm, close friends and Family will gather at the Jinx for a private memorial. After a few hours, we will open the Jinx to the public. A memorial fund is being set up, with donations going to help pay for the ongoing medical costs for Emily Boutwell, Jason Statts and Keith Kozel, as all of Athons medical expenses have already been taken care of. More information about that when it becomes available.
