at Survival Research Lab’s Benefit for Tim North. Highlight of the evening so far—the raucous exuberance of the Extra Action Marching Band juxtaposed against David Therrien’s high-voltage Body Drum performance. North, a talented percussionist and long time fixture in the SF industrial/machine art scene, is best know for his innovative “Hoverdrum”. He was recently diagnosed with cancer and the prognosis is not good. A lot of positive energy is in the house for him right now. Be well, Tim.
