This Thursday, my band, Days of Confusion is joining a few others in a charitable event, meant as a fund raiser for Deftones' bassist Chi Cheng, who, after surviving a car crash, has been in a coma for a very long period of time (about 4 years) and currently recovering at his home.

We are very proud to be a part of this concert which is being organized each year and is officially recognized worldwide, as being part from a series of events meant to raise money for Chi.

A few months later, in October, Răzvan Rădulescu (aka DJ Hefe) of the Romanian nu metal band Coma, released a compilation album titled From Eastern Europe with Love, featuring bands from Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Republic of Macedonia, and Serbia - the proceeds from the sale of the album will also go to the One Love For Chi foundation.[15]
(excerpt from Wikipedia - Chi Cheng)

Razvan is a great dude in Romania, DJ in a well known band here and all around promoter and organizer of concerts and rock tv and radio shows. He is one of the few remaining people supporting the local scene and promoting rock/ metal music in Romania - he helped us a lot and now he invited us to perform this Thursday at the 'One Love For Chi' concert in Bucharest.

Thank you mate!

It was really weird for the first part of the show... The venue was almost empty, man!

We were afraid that, as the band before us, we would play for 10-20 people, but luckily, after being ready with the line check and almost on stage to begin, the crowd formed and we had a good time.

Sadly though, the great big crowd amassed when the DJs and Hip hop artists performed .. Looks like Chi Cheng has more support from hip hop and dj music loving fans laugh.gif
