Help Support Jimmy LaFave

Austin Songwriting Hero Has Terminal Cancer

I knew a little bit about Jimmy LaFave's health, but he was very private about it - until now. It's been made public that Jimmy is suffering from an aggressive and terminal form of cancer - terrible news for Austin music. Meanwhile, the city is rallying around Jimmy - a crowdsourcing effort has been launched, and at present there are two opportunities to support Jimmy at live shows: tonight (Friday 4/21) at Threadgill's South, and May 18th at the Paramount Theater.

All our best, Jimmy - we're with you.
