Over the past decade-plus, SF sound engineer Kim Greiss has worked behind the boards at venues like Bottom of the Hill, Slim’s, and Great American Music Hall. Greiss was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, and her friends in the local music community are rallying together to help support her as she embarks on treatment to defeat it.
That support comes in three forms, beginning with a benefit show on Thursday, November 11th, at Bottom of the Hill (9pm, $10 and up sliding scale, All Ages). The show features locals Taxes, Fake Your Own Death, Kill Moi and DJ BAGeL Ted.
Second and third, a raffle and a silent auction will be held during the show, although you don’t need to be present to participate in either. The items offered for both are pretty great. The raffle includes, among other prizes, photos and prints from some of the Bay’s best concert photographers, a guitar, and over a dozen new CDs from Sub Pop. On the auction front, how does a one year free admission pass to every show at Bottom of the Hill sound? Or perhaps a weekend van rental? Find out more details about the items and how to participate at these Raffle and Auction pages. If all of this sounds too difficult, you can also donate some money to help Kim via PayPal.
