1. The spirit of Brian Redman - musician, bartender, friend, superhero - still hangs heavy over Tacoma; it always will. The man touched so many lives, a fact evident long before the tragic scooter accident that took his life last September. Beginning at 3 p.m. today, Doyle's Public House will hold Rock in Peace 2, a benefit for the Brian Redman Memorial Foundation - which helps kids in Pierce County pursue music. There is no cover, but a donation is suggested. Considering the lineup - Fields Without Fences, Last Chance Romeos, The Hands Of Toil, And Those Who Were Dragged, the Revengers, Mahnhammer, DJ Chris Roxx, 12 Gauge Saint, Doxology, Glimpse and Noi!se - it's the least you could do.
