It’s Dave Brown Day
Holiday Matinee founder Dave Brown is leaving town. Why? Read this. If you knew the guy and want to wish him well in his new life, stop by Starlite’s back patio tonight at 8 p.m., give him a hug and tell him CityBeat sent you.
You know what this occasion calls for? A poem. So here it is—a silly little attempt at creativity for a guy who has pimped and promoted creative stuff for longer than we can remember:
Dave Brown—DB—we shall miss thee,
As shall many others.
A brother? Not quite, but we liked you quite a bit,
From music to art, your work has always been pretty legit.
Cool stuff is your thing,
And we’re sure you will bring,
Your creative energy wherever you go.
But just know that we dug you,
And we may just hug you
Tonight as we say bye-bye.
