Ben Russo
Two nights ago, our former contributor and fixture of the local music community Ben Russo passed away.

As a host/music director and an all-around fan, Ben was a common sight at shows and among friends in the Bay Area. As a staff writer, Ben wrote a handful of posts for us in 2015, all of them bursting with wit and warmth.

Rest easy, Ben.
