If you’ve been to Corner Music in 12South, you’ve probably seen Todd “Toddzilla” Austin. You know, the Minister of Funk? The guy with the Road Warrior look? The guy that probably sold you a Fender Twin at some point? Well, he needs your help.
On Thursday, June 15, Austin was away from his home when a fire broke out. By the time it was extinguished, he had lost most of his cats, his musical equipment, and his beloved 1964 Corvette Stingray.
This Saturday, the Basement East will throw a fundraiser for him, with appearances by Big Rock Show, Blonder Than Hell, Tyson Leslie, JonesWorld, Jackhammer (Austin is in the last two), and more. For tickets, click here. To donate to Austin’s GoFundMe, click here.
