Published Feb 22, 2011Last April, tragedy struck the Canadian music community when drummer Devon Clifford collapsed onstage at Vancouver's Rickshaw Theatre during a performance with You Say Party! We Say Die! and passed away due to a brain hemorrhage. Since then, Clifford has been memorialized with a waterfall in Abbostford, BC. Now, his friends will remember him with a memorial show.
The Devon Clifford Memorial Fund Benefit Show will take place at Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret on April 20, just over a year since his tragic passing. The lineup includes the Tranzmitors, Hard Feelings (of which Clifford was once the drummer), Chains of Love, Vicious Cycles and Third Beach. More information can be found here.
The show will cost $10 at the door. All proceeds from the event will go towards the Devon R.B. Clifford Memorial Foundation, a registered charitable society that's main goal is to "support music programs and education in youths and young adults that are financially disadvantaged."
