A co-working Friend of Unfair Park sends word that tonight at 10 p.m., WFAA-Channel 8 will have an interview with Ryann Rathbone, Carter Albrecht's girlfriend, about the events leading up to his death two weeks ago today. Apparently, ads promoting the segment have been airing on Channel 8 this afternoon.
I also noticed on Ryann's MySpace blog today that on October 20, Albrecht's friends are putting on a tribute concert at the Granada Theater. Writes Ryan, "We expect to spend this evening celebrating the wonderful talented musician, Carter Albrecht...and more importantly the loving man who loved me, his parents and his friends way more than any spot light and adoring fans could ever give him." The event will also serve as a fundraiser for the Carter Albrecht Music Foundation. --Robert Wilonsky
