Flight to Mars ,featuring Mike McCready, performed a benefit concert for the Northwest Chapter of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) at the Showbox last nite. Dan and I had VIP passes that got us (along with other fans) into a pre-show party and gave us a chance to briefly meet Mike and others in the band. Kristen Ward opened - she was awesome. McCready then performed a tribute to Jimi Hendrix with brothers Rick and Chris Friel -- co-founders of McCready's original band Shadow. Duff McKagan of former Guns N' Roses fame came on stage to join for a couple more songs. Feral Children next. Then Flight to Mars rounded out the great evening. We weren't in bed until 3:00 am - a true rarity in this household.
Thanks to Lizardking for the use of the photos - mine sucked
