Dear Friends,

Last month I saw Patterson in NYC with a friend, who was attending her first solo show. From the already-in-motion opening theme, as driving as it is tender, through every lyric, every vocal expression, we were riveted to "The Ballad of Cecil McCobb," Patterson's tribute to Wes Freed.

HeAthens know moments like these: feeling suddenly alone in the song, not caring about crying in public, and feeling at the same time more present, connected, inspired, and alive than anyone could explain. I looked to my friend at the end of the song and felt it in her too.

Those of you who know me can guess what I said then: "Just wait till you go to Homecoming!" YES, Homecoming! And now (you know I'm counting) it's only 69 days away.

Together our community has endured its share of loss this past year... Perhaps more than its share. And there's so much more to this than my own sentences can express and honor.

I couldn’t be more grateful for our community's presence together… that amid so much loss, none of us, myself included, have to go it alone; that the community has grown, keeps growing, and more than ever keeps generating gratitude, presence, and giving forward—in more ways and higher amounts than ever—to Nuci’s Space. Donations of time and artwork (and of good old cash!), raffles, auctions, birthday gifts, sales of food and merch; there were so many avenues we took to get to our $60K total last year.

This year there will be still more—enthusiasm for supporting Nuci’s now extends year-round! Groups of us meet, brainstorm, and create new ways to fuel Nuci’s work caring for vulnerable people… people who need to know they're not going it alone either.

So many of us offer so much time, talent, and treasure. It’s that last of which I’m asking you for here. As always, your donation will get you a killer show that you can’t get anywhere else, last year’s Homecoming night 2, 4/7/2022 from the 40 Watt. And you can’t get it anywhere else because we HeAthens did it all. We filmed it (essentially *working* at a Homecoming show), recorded the audio for it, edited it, burned it, and will fulfill the order for it…together.

At that show last month, when Patterson introduced “The Ballad of Cecil McCobb,” he discussed setting out to write a song about Wes after he died. "...It was a dismal failure...," Patterson said,

"...because there's no way to fit that motherf*cker into a song!"

(I'm sure I wasn't the only one thinking: TRUTH.)

Patterson continued, "...so then the idea was to write a song that Wes would like, in fact, that he would love."

Such is the momentum that drives us forward together, that makes me excited to ask you to join me, Sarah, and this community in giving what you can, as much as you can, in support of Nuci’s Space.

Let's make something with these gifts that we would really like, in fact, LOVE.

Looking forward,

Luke

Over 150 views in about 8 hours. These days, that's a very impressive number and I hope it's indicative of the continuing enthusiam for supporting Nuci's. As always, thanks to those involved in putting this, and all the fundraisers, together. I will make my contribution this week.
