Monday Mixteen: 8/29/21

Monday Mixteen 20210830

This Saturday, the local music community lost a great soul.  Droo D’Anna lost his battle with COVID and transcended into the afterworld.  Not only was he the master mind behind Droo’s Peace Crush, he hosted many an open mic, helping foster new talent within the metroplex.  He was a kind soul who radiated joy, and I consider myself lucky to have known the man.

The benefit to help with Droo’s medical expenses will still proceed Sunday, September 5th at Six Springs Tavern in Richardson.  I’m sure the show will be equal parts sorrow over his passing and a joyous celebration of his life.

Today’s Monday Mixteen features a track from each of DPC’s albums, as well as other acts who Droo loved, and who loved Droo.  This playlist is also another acrostic playlist with a none too hidden message.  I share this message not to argue politics or science, but rather as a plea.  It’s the plea of a guy who doesn’t want to lose another friend to COVID.  It’s the plea of a local music supporter who is afraid of the damage that a worsening wave of COVID infections can inflict upon our music community.  This is serious, and we must unite to prevent further loss of life to our community.  It’s the same community that Droo gave so much of himself to.
