If you have met Nettie & Davis Byrd, then you already know. If you have not, let me tell you this about them: there is not a nicer couple I could be writing this article about. They really are the unsung heroes of the Midwest when it comes to the underground music scene.
Davis and Nettie own Carl’s Tavern in New Haven, IN – a suburb of Fort Wayne. They are amazing hosts, and have brought so many shows to this area that we would not have gotten otherwise. Over the last several years, they have really rejuvenated the scene in Northeast Indiana. They are long-time Juggalos, and just radiate love and generosity. And they are some of the biggest Cherry Bomb supporters I know. These two, the bar, their family – I hold very dear to me. When I read (a week before Christmas) that their house burned down, it drove me to tears. I immediately reached out and made sure they were all safe and offered to help out in any way I could. I shared the posts on social media asking for thoughts and prayers for their family and people were already SWARMING. Within hours I was in conversation with several people, and talk of doing a benefit show began. So many artists have volunteered to play this show and pack the place, with more still being added.
FAMILY! It is now our time to give back to a family that has given so much to our community. Replicon Radio is sponsoring a benefit show with a charity raffle to benefit the Byrds. Please, if you can, show up to this show. Donate. Share the post. Share the flyer. Tell a friend. There are more artists and updates being added, so please check back! Faygoluvers will have a presence in the form of Cherry Bomb, as well as many other media outlets.
