On Thursday, June 19, the Pavilion stage at Expo New Mexico will host Hennyfest from 6 to 9pm. It's a chance for us to gather collectively in celebration of Henny's life and amaze at how deeply and poignantly his long fingers of influence probed into our community. Don't be mad: Henny would have liked that sentence. There will be food and coffee available, as well as performances by a few of the many musicians he affected, including: Black Maria, Chris Dracup, Kimo, Sam Obenshain, The Replicators, Young Edward, Blake Harper and (cough) the Ant Farmers. Purchase of memorial t-shirts and posters will benefit the Michael Henningsen Scholarship Fund, as will donations mailed to Henny's wife Danette Townsend (PO Box 633, Cedar Crest, NM 87008). From Central, drive north on San Pedro until you see sad people.
