LOS ANGELES – A tribute show for Donny Popejoy and Greg Pope Romero drew the crowds to The Redwood in downtown LA. The fortunate fans in attendance were treated to sets from The Binges, The Probe, Taquila Mockingbird, Star Party and others.

The afternoon-into-evening event was an intimate affair that was marked by reminiscences and song, not to mention good food and drink from The Redwood.

“I’m so happy to be here, The Pope and Donny I have encountered at hundreds of shows,” Ames Flames said. “It’s hard to fathom they’re not here. I’m here to celebrate the great lives, not mourn.”
