DATE CHANGED FOR MY ANNE FEENEY FUNDRAISER!!
!!TO HELP COVER HER CANCEROUS CANCER BILLS!!

NOW SATURDAY OCTOBER 9th AT CAFE RHIZOME
NEAR MAIN STREET AND BROADWAY IN VANCOUVER
8:30PM, $5-25 donation, for Anne Feeney
with Jeff Andrew, Joey Only and comrades

Howdy friends...many of you know my good friend and folk singer
from Pittsburgh Painsylvania known as Anne Feeney.  You ought
to know her, she's been croonin songs for more than 35 years
and doing it for the working class.  She and I traveled around
last year touring after being friends for much of the last
decade and she'd never miss a chance to stop at a picket line
for striking workers and sing em some songs to cheer em up...

...it was as dreary as an April hell could be when we stopped
into that rainy picket outside the big steel mill in Hamilton
Ontario where she lit faces up with songs against the goons and
ginks and company finks.  Those guys had been wanderin around
in circles for weeks striking while the big bosses sez the
economy's no good anymore so all these guys have to get fired
so that rich pigs can stay rich pigs...in all that time only
Anne and I came to sing em some good old fashioned fighting
songs and they sure did like it.  Even fed us afterward.

Lately she fell ill with some cancer, a big tumor in her lung
nearly half a foot big?  Imagine having half a cancerous foot
in your lung?  Down in Pittsburgh the system doesn't care if
you can afford to live or not, so it's up to me and my friends
to raise a few bucks to ease the burden on her lungs, brains
and hearts because Obama won't do it for her.  Hell, when I was
sick with tuberculosis and dying she went out of her way for
me...so I would be an ungrateful bastard if I didn't do
something back.

All her beautiful curly Irish hair fell out and she looks sorta
funny now, which is all the more reason to have pity on her and
send her some money so she can pay her hospital bills or at
least buy a wig...or a hat. And you know, us Irish folk are
like Samson..when we're sober all our power comes from our
hair!

So the date has changed from the 8th to the 9th...or maybe it
didn't change and I was just wrong all a long.  At any rate, I
hope that wouldn't hold you back from coming out to the cafe,
having some soup or beer or beer-soup and having a good old
time with us there.  And if we can send Anne $5 or $500 it
would be something she didn't have already...I guess I mean to
say I am hoping more than one person comes cause five bucks
sucks when you're in the hole ten grand!  How bout it
friends...let's party like it's 1999.

If you want to know more about my radical folk singing comrade
Anne Feeney, who Utah Philips once called the greatest labor
singer in North America...go to her website and lookie for
yourself. (www.annefeeney.com).  She's one of those IWW
(Industrial Workers of the World types..she gave everything to
everyone else and has nothing left for herself.

Anyway, there's no room for sectarian crap at this event..just
room to sing a few Feeney songs and have a good old time...and
if you don't have any plans and you don't like hockey but
decide not to come anyway, you must be a heartless capitalist
pig, why else would you sit at home doing nothing but
facebookin people who don't even care about you...come out and
see some real people instead.

till then my friends...joeyonly
