Friends of Unfair Park first met Hal Samples's harmonica-playing pal Benjamin Ford -- better known as ScrapIron -- back in November 2006, when we posted an excerpt from Hal's doc-in-progress Dreamtown, about the homeless in Dallas. But earlier this month, ScrapIron died -- without a cent to his name, without a family to bury him. Wrote Hal on March 9, "it's really shitty this whole deal has me angry...sad... fearful... and pissed... and grateful... all of it." So, tonight, the photographer pays his respects to his friend and subject with a memorial concert at Space on 2814 Main Street. As you can see from the poster above, Hal's assembled quite the line-up.
