Metro announces benefit series

David-James Figueroa has worked at Metro for two decades, rising to become the club's head of security while also creating and hosting its weekly punk-rock nights. Some readers will know that Figueroa has struggled with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, currently in remission. Tragically, however, Figueroa's his wife Sonya was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. To assist the couple and help defray their mounting medical bills, Metro is planning a series of benefit shows called Another State of Mind.

The inaugural concert in the series, set for March 14, features Poi Dog Pondering, Scott Lucas of Local H, Giant Step, and Pegboy. Contact Metro for more information.
