RIP Lance Hahn.
Lance Hahn, guitarist/vocalist for the great Austin-via-San Francisco "anarcho-situationist-pop-punk" band J Church, passed away yesterday, apparently the result of a kidney disease-induced coma. There's a really touching tribute to him up on the Austin 360 music blog that you can check out for the exact story, or you can peruse the J Church myspace page for the sorts of always slightly unsettling post-death comments that make the internet a weird place sometimes. This dude had been a huge part of the Texas DIY community during my formative teenage punk days & will be missed terribly in Austin & elsewhere. RIP, Lance.
