Death of Sid Copeland

Jugheads' proprietor will be missed

As of press time, New Times got word of a tragic loss suffered by the Valley's punk rock scene: Sid Copeland, 33, proprietor of Jugheads bar and music venue, suffered a fatal heart attack on Saturday, April 22, reportedly while lifting weights at a commercial gym. He is survived by his wife, Tonya, and three young children. Copeland had owned Jugheads since 1998 and was an extended family member to bands across the punk rock spectrum. The message board AZPunk.com was immediately flooded with friends, band members and patrons of Jugheads expressing their disbelief, sadness, and condolences for his family. Donations to the family can be made via PayPal at azpunk.com/vivasid.php, or via postal service to AZPunk, Attn: Sid, P.O. Box 64862, Phoenix, AZ 85082. Arrangements for Sid Copeland's memorial will also be announced on AZPunk.com. Look for additional coverage in next week's issue of New Times.
