Spastic Times Call for Spastic Measures

Fictional astronaut Steve Austin had six million dollars behind his rebuilding. What does Matt Spastic -- drummer for chaotic garage punks The Complainiacs -- have? A little help from his friends. Spastic recently took a sucker punch from the universe, fracturing his jaw in five places and knocking out several of his teeth. The downtown denizen’s jaw is wired and subsequent costs keep getting higher, so friends and The Firehouse familia put together the “Hit by a Meteor!” benefit show to help defray the damage. Djentrification, Sonorous, The MadCaPs, Strange Family Circus, Babsomatic!, and Tucson’s ultramaroon will stir up some good mojo.
