Tell Me About the Rabbits
It's not your fault if you don't immediately think of the West Valley when you think of the Valley music scene, but that's not for lack of trying by the Lost Rock Revolution, a loose collective comprising rock groups Graceful Degradation, The Bittersweet Way, Tell Me About the Rabbits, GOMI, and Tracey Rappa and the Heat, which sought to make a splash in the city's western quadrant.
"As so many drunken impulses go, the Lost Rock Revolution mostly fizzled," states the press release announcing tonight's gig at Donna Jean's Libations, which unites the five original Lost Rock Revolution bands. "The differing approaches and styles became more hindrance than help. Bands broke up. Lineups changed. Friendships remained, and all of the bands continued to support each other in varying capacities. It may not be a Revolution any more, but the Lost Rock still lives."
Last fall, Anthony Lopiccolo, the bass player for Tell Me About The Rabbits, found out he had cancer. He fought it off, but his insurance dropped him and he's facing a mountain of medical bills. So the Lost Rockers had a cause, and they've united to raise money for Lopiccolo, hosting a show at the very bar where they hatched their idea. All proceeds from the door will go to helping Lopiccolo defray the costs of his medical expenses, and there will be a raffle and for a guitar and amplifier. -- Jason P. Woodbury
