For those of you who haven't heard, our dear friend Dominic Vroman passed away on March 5th.  We are having a benefit/memorial to celebrate Dominic's life and to raise funds for his services. The event will be held at the Blind Pig Pub in Austin (map).  It will be on Sunday, March 25th with the doors opening at 7 PM for a quiet gathering of friends and family.  At 9 PM there will be a few bands playing to help raise money as well.  If you would like to donate, but can not attend the event, a PayPal page has been set up at
