"LAYNE STALEY Tribute And Benefit Concert To Feature TANTRIC, HURT - June 8, 2008"

The seventh annual Layne Staley Tribute And Benefit Concert — honoring musician Layne Staley's life and music — will be held on Saturday, August 23, 2008, 8:30PM at Showbox Sodo located at 1700 1st Avenue S., Seattle, WA, one block south of Safeco Field.

This year's event will feature the band HURT, who spent time on the road as direct support for ALICE IN CHAINS on their 2006 tour. The show also features another favorite among ALICE IN CHAINS fans, TANTRIC, whose single "Down and Out" is currently #20 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart and #19 on Radio & Records' Active Rock chart.

TANTRIC and HURT not only share a strong tie to Layne's fans, they also both feature the violin during their live performances.

As is tradition, the tribute concert will also showcase local Seattle artists, including up-and-coming band FUTURE FOSSILS; and returning to the stage for a second year is band on the rise RIVERBEND. The event will also feature many special touches that uniquely honor Layne and his fans, including a special performance by Nancy McCallum, Layne's mother.

All proceeds benefit Layne Staley Fund, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization created in 2002. Seeking to turn the tragedy of Layne's death into hope for those that suffer, Layne Staley Fund uses donated funds and proceeds from the sale of merchandise and tribute revenues to support local chemical dependency facilities, drug education, and outreach programs. Layne Staley Fund was co-founded by Nancy McCallum and Jamie Richards of Emerald City Musician's Network.

Moody Glow - 2007
New Release coming spring '09



Future Fossils are a 3 piece band from Seattle with an indescribable style that has risen from the depths of obscurity to one of the most talked about bands in the Seattle area. They draw people to the stage with they’re own brand of energy, vibe and intricate arrangements that define their unique sound.

Since their release on Jibe records in June of 2007, Future Fossils have played all of Seattle's premier venues with a crowd response usually reserved for bands with a far more familiar presence.

Jolene from KISW’s Loud & Local radio show had this to say - "Future Fossils have sweat and conviction coming out of their pores! One of the things I like best about them is that you can't compare them to any one band.....proving that yes, original and compelling Rock can still be made! And Rock they do, give a listen you'll dig!"
