Saturday January 12th
Jumbo's, 3736 3rd St, Detroit, MI (on 3rd street, by Mack)

Fawad is from Pakistan. He is working on obtaining U.S. citizenship on basis of political asylum, as people in Pakistan don't necessarily have the right to freedom of expression as they do here. Before getting more into describing the situation, here are the show details:

Gutrot (the one, the only)

Scum (raw D-beat from Detroit)

Hedorah (sludgy doom from Detroit)

Disillusionment (two-piece death metal from Detroit)

Minus9 (Ypsi grind)

Beyond and Back (epic metal from Ypsi)

Doors at 8, 21+, $8

Fawad has been living in the United States since the late 80's and came here on a student visa. When the visa expired, he would have had to return to Pakistan to obtain citizenship the normal way. Knowing that would put him in serious danger, being into punk and metal and not subscribing to the religious law of the country, Fawad chose to stay in the U.S. The citizenship case has been in process for several years now and this benefit is to help cover the enormous legal fees that have been incurred.

Good news now - the case has been reopened due to "changed circumstances in Pakistan," Fawad has been able to renew his work permit and return to work, and the case stands a good chance of being approved soon. Your support is greatly appreciated- Fawad just wants something we all take for granted: to have the freedom to be who he wants without having to worry about being arrested or killed.
