The recent passing of a local musical legend Dan Hosker left the whole community mourning. His birthday would have been on Dec. 9, so his friends and family are coming together to celebrate for two days at Churchill's. Hosker's sister Chris is collecting $5 toward a music scholarship in his name. Those playing include his former band Boise Bob and His Backyard Band, Charlie Pickett and Friends, Humbert, Joe (Hosker) O'Brien and the Terrible Three, Rat Bastard, Kenny Millions, Curious Hair, and Xela Zaid.
This will be the most fun thing you'll do all Basel. First off, you'll be able to check out Wynwood's newest bar, Gramps, which we're writing about all over this list. Secondly, I'll be one of the judges of the dance contest. Come say hi, shake your butt, scrub the ground, and show me what it is that you've got. And then, I'll judge the shit out of you!
