Details, Band Lineup Set For Thursday Night's Frankie 45 Memorial Concert at Club Dada

Categories: DFW Music News
In the days since the news of Frank Campagna Jr.'s death broke on Saturday, the outpouring of support in the community has been fairly overwhelming.

Saturday night's gathering at Kettle Art was an especially inspiring scene, as the crowd, which numbered in the hundreds, spilled out of Frankie 45's father's gallery, onto the sidewalk and into Elm Street -- an impressive show of support for the Campagna family and Deep Ellum as a whole.

Here's hoping that this same spirit carries over to Thursday night at Club Dada, Frankie's former place of employment, as the venue re-opens its doors (for real this time, and for good, too), to host a memorial concert for Frankie 45.

The early returns suggest it will: Almost 550 people have already confirmed their attendance at the event, according to this unofficial Facebook memorial concert event page's RSVP count.

And, now that all the details have been shored up, we imagine that count will continue to rise. After the jump, check out all the pertinent, newly available, and final details for the memorial -- although many of them, I acknowledge, can be gleaned from the event's official flier, which you can see here to the right.

The doors to Club Dada will open on Thursday night at 7 p.m. with a DJ set from DJ Bad Holly, who will spin until the stage show begins at 8 p.m. and again throughout the night, in between band sets.

At that point, bands will perform 20-minute sets at the top and bottom of the hour for the remainder of the evening.

Here's the lineup, with set times:

8 - Leg Sweeper
8:30 - The Double Downs (featuring members of Spector 45)
9 - Missile
9:30 - Here Holy Spain
10 - The Phuss
10:30 - The Marfalites
11 - Barry Kooda Combo
11:30 - THe BAcksliders
12 - The American Fuse

There's no official cover charge, although the door will be asking for a suggested $10 donation, all of which will go toward the Deep Ellum Community Association, per the family's request.

Special thanks to everyone who has offered their support and to all the bands who offered to play. It was a ridiculously high amount -- to the point where we had to turn bands away because there just wasn't any more room on the bill -- all of which is very much appreciated.

Hope to see you on Thursday.

why post about reverend hh if they we'rent confirmed? i think they are playing house of rules in february


I always thought of the Campagnas as the Royalty of Deep Ellum. Much love to them, you're in our thoughts.


for so young a man the outpouring of love has been great Hope he sees all this from his place in Heaven


Also our family's 'Rock & Roll' minister, Reverend Tom Gibbons of St. Barnabas, will be in attendance to say a few words.
