That's right, everyone's 173rd favorite local drummer Tim is turning another year older and fatter. As such it only seems right to make everyone as hard of hearing as he'll inevitably become with each passing year.

In addition to celebrating another trip around the sun, we'll also be taking up a collection to raise a little money for a good cause. As many of you may know, October 11th is also National Coming Out Day. As such, it seems appropriate that we raise a little scratch for a local charity that benefits the Queer Community here in Cincinnati in some way. We're proud to announce that the recipient of our fundraiser will be Lighthouse Youth & Family Services
. Lighthouse is a local Cincinnati charity that works with families and youth who are both homeless and at-risk for homelessness. The services they provide include «early childhood services; behavioral health and psychiatric services; home-based services to families; services to youth engaged with the juvenile justice system; community residential treatment facilities; foster care and adoption; independent living services; and opportunities through education.»
Hundreds of youth each year become homeless here in Hamilton country with countless more in situations where they are at-risk for homelessness. Throughout the United States, a disproportionate number of Queer and Trans youth become homeless each year. Cincinnati is,unfortunately, no exception to this. Lighthouse has been recognized on many occasions for their innovative work on this front including Host Family Programs, LGBTQ Cultural Competency Training for youth-serving professionals, and their Safe and Supported family workshop.
As per usual this is an all ages racket. Tip your bartenders and be respectful. Buy stuff from the touring bands.
