Miami knows hit and runs. You've probably been a victim, committed one, or know someone who's been affected.
Hell Bound City Tattoo's Esteban Dalpra was riding his motorcycle on Miami Avenue when Angel Alberto Ochoa ran a stop sign in a box truck and smashed into him with 16 tons of steel. If not for a roadside tourniquet, he would have died on the side of the road. If not for a helmet, he would have been killed on impact.
Because he is a warrior, he is alive and well. But thanks to medical costs, it's time to Raise Some Hell for Esteban.
This Saturday night at Churchill's Pub, there will be 11 punk rock bands from Miami, Houston, and New Mexico who will fill the night with holiday cheer, and all door proceeds benefit the Raise Some Hell for Esteban fund.
But wait, that's not all ... There will be a raffle with prizes including gift certificates to eat at Gigi in Midtown and classic motorcycles like this 1980 Yamaha XS 650 bobber hardtail.
A cool $10 gets you in the door.
But wait there's more ... Pay just $5 at the door and bring a new unwrapped toy, and clean blankets or sweaters, and Idle Hands Productions will donate them to Children of Homestead Farmworkers, and/or the homeless.
But wait, there's more ... This Friday, December 20th at Handcrafted Tattoo Gallery, there will be an art auction featuring donated works and gift certificates from local artists, tattoo artists, photographers, restaurants, venues, record stores, and others. Cash, credit, and debit accepted. Food and drinks on site.
So c'mon out. And Raise Some Hell for a homie.
