Archspire's bassist Jaron recently had a really bad stroke. Some bands including Archspire are trying to raise some money for him by putting on a fundraiser show soon.
The guy has wicked chops too so its really sad to see this happen to him. Especially because he eats well, doesnt do drugs, and apparently doesnt drink very much at all either. I dont think ive ever seen him with a drink in hand at local shows or when I've run into him.
So yeah if you're in the area, come out! Its only $10. Here's a video of some of his playing:
