Let's Remember Nowhere Man and A Whiskey Girl

Posted By on Thu, Nov 12, 2015 at 5:28 PM



Every year since the passing of Nowhere Man and A Whiskey Girl's Derrick and Amy Ross, we've written about the people they've left behind and the work they've done to make sure the husband-wife music duo are not forgotten through a benefit show for the Southern Arizona Lupus Foundation. This week, in a mini music feature, we gave you notice of Saturday's show at The Flycatcher. We're giving you notice the next couple of days, because we're certain with Jimmy Eat World returning to Tucson for this special night, it will sell out.

But we also want to make sure it's understood how special this event is. Yes, as a fundraiser you will hear a lot about lupus—complications from this disease took Amy away from the Tucson and Bisbee communities. But you will hear the music of NMWG from local music—many dear friends of the couple—who do want to make sure the music is heard, loved and celebrated.

On Saturday, Nov. 14, the Third Benefit to Fight Lupus takes place at the Flycatcher (340 E. Sixth St.).

So cheers to Bryan Sanders, Jimi Giannatti and Keli Carpenter for continuing this benefit and not forgetting their friends. We're lucky to have these dear people call Tucson home, just as we were lucky to have Amy and Derrick give us their music. Go. Remember. And yes, celebrate.
