On June 14th, Neumos in Seattle will be hosting a memorial for Darius Minwalla. Ken Stringfellow, Jon Auer, Matt Harris, and Joe Skyward will be present, though we don’t yet know who will be performing and when. All proceeds will benefit the Minwalla family.
Also, Hugh Cornwell was interviewed by Sean Nelson last week about Darius, who played drums in Hugh’s band for the past few years. You can read that interview here on The Stranger.
A cause of death has still not been determined.
Jon was on KEXP’s Audio Oasis show (hosted by Sean Nelson) on August 19th and we have the session available for download.
The songs he performed:
“At Least For Now”
“Coming Right Along”
“The Year Of Your Demise”
Download it here (71mb mp3). Thanks to Idiotjed for recording this and sending it in!
Here is a link (second one down on the page) to Jon on is on Seattle’s KNDD The End recently performing ‘Bottom Of The Bottle’ and ‘Six Feet Under’.
Lastly, here’s something fun Stephen Landon sent into to JonAuer.com – it’s a recording of his son Zachary singing along to “Coversations,” and you can listen to that here (6mb mp3). Thanks to Stephen for that!
