Jerry DeCicca of The Black Swans has been spreading the word about one more memorial event for his late friend and bandmate Noel Sayre. Read on:

Noel Sayre Memorial Thursday August 7th, 8:00pm Surly Girl Saloon, Back Room/Parlor

I was wondering if you could do me a little favor and get the word out about our get together for Noel this Thursday. We are asking people who have known Noel over the years to come on out and share a night with us. We’ll have some pictures and perhaps some music. We’ll be in the back room at Surly Girl.

We are also attempting to compile a CD of some of Noel’s various contributions to the Columbus music scene over the years. We hope to have those available Thursday for people to enjoy.

There will also be some solid rock shows happening around town, including a rare no-locals show at Cafe Bourbon Street, 2216 Summit St., featuring Chooglin, Pepi Ginsberg and the mysterious Mr. Tiger. 10 p.m. start/$5 cover for that.
