Free Flux Forces! Benefit Tonight at Sweat Records

Rick Diaz has counted Ryan Oh as his best pal "forever," and as his right-hand man in local noise-pop weirdos hahahelp! for the past five years. So the soft-spoken Diaz probably deserves a hug these days. Ryan, who also plays around town as Flux Forces, has been M.I.A. in the M.I.A. for the past several weeks, languishing in jail thanks to a morass of legal and financial troubles.

The legal stuff is murky, but nonviolent: Diaz says Oh was stopped for driving with a suspended license, but past issues mean he can't get bail. The only way out is a lawyer, which means money -- which Oh doesn't have.
