Rockin' for Rob

Date set for posthumous release of Rockin' Rob Dapello's music

By Sarah Quelland

THE LOCAL MUSIC COMMUNITY still hasn't gotten over the shock of the untimely death of local musician and Zero staff writer "ROCKIN' ROB" DAPELLO, who died from an apparent brain aneurysm earlier this year while attending a show at the CACTUS CLUB. In March, a tearful farewell concert was held to celebrate Dapello's life and raise money for a posthumous release of his recordings. The CD (which includes original material and songs by other bands that held significance for Dapello) is ready and will be given away at the release show scheduled for Nov. 9 at the Cactus. The FORGOTTEN, the ODD NUMBERS, the SECRETS, CURBSIDE, CAUSTIC NOTIONS and Dapello's own band UNCLE LUCIFER will perform.

The ICON SUPPERCLUB returns to its rock format this week, ditching a short-lived attempt at hosting jazz. The former home of the popular nightclub the EDGE hosts its first rock & roll show this Wednesday (Oct. 24) with acoustic performances by TRAVIS, the JOSH JOPLIN GROUP and DEEP BLUE SOMETHING. The concert is a CD-release party for MIX 106.5's latest compilation Today's Best Mix Volume III--Totally Live! , which features rare live performances by Dido, Nelly Furtado and R.E.M. and includes songs by all three of the bands playing on Wednesday. Tickets are $10 and proceeds benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. CD sales will be donated to the Support Network for Battered Women. Other shows coming up at the Icon include Y&T on Nov. 14 and the MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP on Dec. 5.
