A Churchills punk-rock show means loud, crunching guitar chords being pummeled out by bands boasting anarchistic names like Hide Your Daughters and No Peace at All. It means a crowd sporting leather jackets and mohawks, and a gravel-paved parking lot filled with broken beer bottles and crushed cigarette butts. And, in this case, it also means a raffle.
Low-Fidelity Productions, a local independent booking/promotions company, will be hosting a tribute show for Jason Armstrong tonight at 8:00 at Churchills. Armstrong, who was the lead singer and guitarist of the popular Pensacola punk band the Bad Habits, was recently killed in a car accident, and tonights show will raise money to help his family pay funeral costs. So in addition to awesome performances from local punk acts like Irish Car Bomb, Malt Liquor Riot, and Find Them to Fight Them, there will be a raffle for prizes including a $100 tattoo from Novi and Babylon Tattoo, a $100 tattoo from Holden and Studio 954, as well as $30 certificates from Sweat Records, Uncle Sams, and CD Collector. Admission is $10, or $15 with a raffle ticket. Call 305-757-1807, or visit www.lowfidelityevents.com.
