From The Meridian’s website:

Joseph Edward Claytor. Known as a real Texas media outlaw, a gruff and grumpy billygoat of a man, a loving husband, devoted father, promoter, publisher, band manager — a man dedicated to getting things done. If you’ve grown up in Texas and attended your share of rock shows, then you’ve likely attended a Joe Claytor Production. A major player credited with helping put the Texas scene on the map, his notable endeavors included promoting for clubs like the Axiom, Goats Head Soup, Urban Art Bar, Deep Phat and booking hundreds of artists from Beck to Carcass to Zeke. He was the creative force behind several potent publications that include Rivethead/Riveted, the Houston Compost, Pile, Jack Cash and most recently the widely-distributed and successful Reloaded Monthly (formerly Rank & Revue) based in Austin, Texas. Joe Claytor lost his life in a tragic car wreck on July 15th, 2005, along with his brother Doug and friend/co-worker, Bobby Greene. Proceeds from this event will go to aid the family.

Come out and show your support. Doors at 3 p.m.
