Mikey Dread

Posted By on Tue, Jul 15, 2008 at 12:39 PM

I'm once again very sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the word on the street is that doorman-about-town Mikey Dread (I assume that's not his real last name, but I've only ever known him as Mikey) was seriously injured when he was hit by a car, riding his bike home from working at Higher Ground on July 5.

At the moment, specifics are pretty vague. From the little I've been told so far, he has several broken bones — according to an e-mail from Turkey Bouillon Mafia's Adam King, "too many to mention." Apparently, he was hit by a cab driver who had no insurance. No word on Mikey's health insurance status.

This Thursday night, Nectar's is hosting a benefit show featuring the reunion of Turkey Bouillon Mafia, who haven't played together in over a year. There will also be a raffle and a good old-fashioned all star jam to close out the night.

Counting DJ A-Dog/Mike Device and Daryl Rabidoux, this would mark the third time in as many months that a serious calamity has befallen members of the Burlington music community. If it's true that bad things happen in threes, let's hope this is the last one for a while. I'm getting really tired relaying this kind of information about people we know and love.
