Pikahsso Will Make You Rethink How You Celebrate Your Birthday
While we're on the subject of selfless good deeds, we really do need to mention how Pikahsso, of P.P.T., is planning on celebrating his birthday February 1: with a Help the Homeless Community Event & Birthday Party at Hal Samples' Space Studios on Main Street. Organizers are asking for "old shoes, clothes, hats and gloves," among other items, to be distributed locally.
Says one-third of the Dallas Observer Music Award-winning trio in his media release: “I was inspired to do this after noticing a cold homeless man with dirty clothing and horrible looking shoes after leaving a convenience store recently. I decided that instead of me receiving gifts for my birthday, I wanted to give the gift of warmth to the people society as a whole has turned their backs on.” More details forthcoming. --Robert Wilonsky
