Katz Company @ Subt

Alex Katz has an incredibly story, and he tells it so well in the video above. Coming back from brain surgery, and a place where he could not comprehend music let alone play it, to a where he is today is amazing. Through Kickstarter he has raised more than enough to release his new ep "The Surgery Sessions" this Friday at Subterranean. The release of the ep will be the perfect to encapsulate how he has taken a dark period in his life and turned it into a positive one.

Katz will be donating 50% of all proceeds from the EP's sale to Children's Hospital where he had his surgery. If you would like to donate to his project at any of the levels the Kickstarter page is up for three more day. Whatever you do be sure to catch Alex at Subt this Friday (2/25) at 9pm with Carbon Tigers and Fly Phoenix.
