Justin Jay's passing last week was a shock for everyone. The autopsy came back and Justin died from Bacterial Meningitis, which caused a seizure and killed him instantly. Justin had been experiencing a headache and a fever. Anyone experiencing similar symptoms urgently need to be tested.
There have been talks about a benefit and now one has been confirmed. The Casbah show on January 21st was already in place on the calendar, but the show will now be a tribute and memorial for Justin. The show features Transfer, New Mexico, and d/wolves. Doors will open early at 7:30pm with the first band starting at 8:30. The show is $14 in advance or $15 the night of the show. Get your tickets here. When the show ends around 11:30, there will be a dance party. It's included in the ticket price, or you'll be able to come in after Transfer for $5 (based on space and capacity), with proceeds going to Justin's family to defray expenses.
