Jagjaguwar Pays Tribute To Women Guitarist Chris Reimer With Streams On February 29
Jagjaguwar, the label home of the band Women, will pay tribute to that band's late guitarist Chris Reimer today, February 29, at 3 p.m. EST with back-to-back streams of Women's two albums, the group's 2008 self-titled debut and 2010's Public Strain, on the label's website. As The Alternate Side reported last week, Reimer died on February 21 in his sleep from what has now been determined to be complications of a possible heart condition. He was 26.
A memorial service for Reimer will take place tonight in Calgary and Reimer's family and friends have set up a blog in his memory (and will be establishing a fund as well).
Jagjaguwar will stream the albums here "in rememberance of our talented and compassionate friend, Chris."
