Welcome to the blog for the benefit for Kim Assaley.

(Please read NEW, post-benefit POSTS below this text)

While riding her bike, a semi delivering ice cream turned in front of Kim. Her right heel was severely injured in the resulting collision.

Though Kim does have medical insurance, her rent and bills will go unpaid while she is not working. She also has prescription co-pay costs and the cost of any food and incidentals we, her friends, are unable to provide.

Kim is now at home resting between tri-weekly hospital visits, awaiting an uncertain number of surgeries before she can walk.

If you know her give her a call, she'd love to hear from you.

If you don't, and are interested in blowing off some holiday steam, this party would be the place to do it.

Often, fund raisers like this are how artists can afford to collect each other's work. Get in on this secret and help Kim by bidding in the silent auction.

Along with the silent art auction, there will be door prizes, bands, an auction for other items, stress relieving camaraderie, a DJ and the usual damn good bar burgers (substitute veggie selections where applicable).

You may know Kim as "Revolting Pussy Kim". She toured as a backup dancer/singer with the Revolting Cocks.

Hope to see you there!

More art for bid!

(text taken from the comments section)

Here's a late entry for the silent auction:

"Nurture", a porcelain puzzle sculpture by Matt Schultz. It's illustrated here:


It's really beautiful, composed of several pieces of white porcelain which fit together like a puzzle (note: marble base shown in photo not included.)

I'll keep the auction open for one week, unless someone gripes that that's too short, and then I'll reconsider.

I'll start the bidding at $50.

Yes, that's kind of high for an opening bid on a silent auction, but I want this piece, so you'll have to pay up if you want it.


Ok friends, we know you and we know you love art. Comment in the comments, starting... Now! (December 13th at 4:10 pm)

Final Band Secdule

doors at 7


Yep, Tim over at Rivethead.tv will be making and donating t-shirts. As per request, you may be wearing your very own help cones.

We will also be raffling off one of the shirts. For five bucks a chance, if you concentrate on this being the prize you want, you could win the pizza.
In her biography, designer Wanda Cobar (above photo from her site, liquidcouture.com) sites the six months she spent recovering from knee surgery as a time that sparked her creativity. She will be donating a dress for silent auction.

Heather Barstow, of Heathers Cafe Couture, will design your clothing and your coffee, and is donating four garments. The lack of apostrophe in the name of the shop/cafe is not a typo, there is more than one Heather. The other Heather will be putting together a gift basket with coffee, tea and goodies. Her last name was not mentioned in the comments. That does not make the goodies any less yummy.


This is the sauna at Ray's Bucktown B&B. Ray has donated a weekday night stay for the silent auction. Bid Bid Bid and you may spend a calm night away from home, or have somewhere for out-of-town visitors to stay. Either way, quite relaxing. Thanks Ray.
