Share this post

Death Cab For Cuties‘ Ben Gibbard is showing his support for gay marriage in his home state of Washington by playing a benefit  for Marriage Equality on October 9th at Seattle’s Smith Tower.

If approved, referendum 74 would make Washington State the first in the nation to defend marriage equality with a public vote.

His performance comes just a week before the release of his solo album Former Lives.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
