Rick Kulwicki benefit slated for the end of March

So what is it they say -- at the end of every dark night a new day dawns? There's solace to be found in that maxim. And some bright spots are starting to emerge on an otherwise dreary week which brought shocking news of Rick Kulwicki's untimely death.

Following a impromptu memorial at the Skylark last night and another vigil which reportedly took place in Seattle, word out of the Fluid camp today is that a benefit is currently being organized for Richard and Roman, the beloved sons Kulwicki left behind.

Details are still be ironed out, obviously, but according to James Clower, who's helping Doug Kauffman and Scott Campbell organize what looks like will end up being a two-day event at Bluebird at the end of March, Mudhoney and Greg Dulli are possibilities, along with another very well known band to be announced and at least two dozen local outfits that have reached out.

Services for Kulwicki will most likely be held early next week. We'll keep you posted as more details become available. In the meantime, be sure to stop by the memorial page set up by Denver Punk Scene on Facebook and pay tribute to a Denver legend who will be sorely missed.
