Photos and reviews from Aftershock coming very soon--and yes, it was a brilliantly-awesome weekend--but first, I want to show you how this music festival has brought some great happiness to the bravest young man I know.
In case you haven't been following Rhynan's story, he was diagnosed with cancer at the beginning of May this year. Going from totally-healthy-and-fit to knowing that the big C was attacking his body and his life. Not one type of cancer, either: four different strains, all incredibly nasty. Two surgeries multiple rounds of chemo, and a few long-and-hard months later, Rhynan is well on the way back to full health. He's a survivor, and he is totally amazing.
And Aftershock happened!!! And what a wonderful thing. Aftershock, Ashton-Magnusson Media, FXCK Cancer, Crazy Dave's Musical Experience, Aftershock bands, musicians, everyone, made this weekend something that this young man will remember for a very, very long time.
