Tonight’s Charleston show will help Gabe save his house

One of the things I love about Bremerton is the way that, underneath its ruggedness, this is a community that helps its neighbor. Look no further than The Charleston on Callow Avenue tonight, where some Bremertonians are throwing a benefit show to help a friend keep his house.

Gabriel Lee’s usually the one doing the helping, but this time, his friends are coming to his aid. And once his friend Zac, who books some shows at the Charleston, and Andy, one of the owners, got the ball rolling, support poured in.

“It’s humbling and heart warming that my friends are doing this for me,” Lee said. “They know I’d never ask, so they just said ‘we’re doing it.’ I’m used to being on the other side of it, helping out others is what makes me happy.”

Lee said he’s getting back on his feet and has recently gotten a new job, but said the show and his friend’s support is a huge help.

The show, which kicks off at 8 p.m., will feature everything from punk to folk to Klezmer, as well as a silent auction feature art by Lee himself. Bands include Danté Manalo, Espiritu Suplex, James Hope, Mythological Horses, Shot on Sight, Jack Moriarty and Small Tribes.

Tickets are $5. Here’s the invite.

One thought on “Tonight’s Charleston show will help Gabe save his house

  1. This is the real Bremerton, not the millions spent to entice developers, the petty politics, the non profits jockeying for power position.
