Nick Poot, bassist for Absurd System, passed away recently after a battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a type of cancer. In his memory several benefit shows were arranged and the most recent of which took place saturday at 538 Johnson with Brain Killer, Parasytic, Perdition, and Nomos. It was a great show, the place exploded especially after a short eulogy by Perdition's frontman. Brain Killer had the entire room moshing and yelling along as well. It was moving to see what punk rock really can do emotionally and the feeling after the show was nothing short of nostalgia. RIP Nick, although I never met you, if the reaction I saw the other night is any sign of your character, than I am sure you were a great man.
The quiet before the storm.
