On Saturday October 20th, the day after Hobgob, Black Sheep will be hosting a memorial benefit show to honor the life of Chad Jeffers. Chad was involved in the Springfield Hardcore scene, through helping out on guitar in Pound for Pound and also taking pictures of the band. Bands playing the benefit show include Pound for Pound, New Society of Anarchists, Soy City Stranglers, and Kick To Tha Head. Kick To Tha Head will be playing a rare reunion show. Money raised from the show will either go to the Gateway Foundation, or to the family of Chad.
Old Pound for Pound member Eric Fromm had this to say:
Come celebrate the life of Pound For Pound guitarist Chad Jeffers who passed away last month. Chad wrote a number of Pound For Pound’s songs and was also responsible for many of the band’s photos before and after his time on guitar.
