Music News: Erik Kish R.I.P.

The Critical Mass family want to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Erik Kish, lead singer and guitarist of Chicago's own Hi Fi & The Roadburners. Erik was killed in a motorcycle accident in the early morning hours of September 29. A Facebook tribute page has been made, and we hope you join and share your fond memories. No word yet on any memorials that may take place. But as soon as there is any news, you will hear it here.
UPDATE: 10/3
Here is a link to a write up in the Chicago Sun Times. The article has a brief history on the band as well as info on an upcoming tribute party to be held in Erik's honor this coming weekend. 
Here is the Facebook page for the memorial service. All the info you'll need is on this page. I hope many of you will make it out for a night of music and memories.  
 UPDATE: 10/5
It has been announced that there will be a benefit concert for Erik to be held at Double Door on Sunday, November 6th. As more details are available, you'll get it here.
