Dave Tedder’s Memorial @ 2640 Space/Ottobar Today

Dave Tedder died suddenly last week.

While I wasn’t especially close to Tedder, I’ve known him for more than half my life at this point. I’m sad to see him go.

I always expected Tedder would be off for good someday, but not like this.

He was a dude you naturally assumed would end up some place like Oakland or RVA, or maybe even some Anarcho-cabin in the woods in the Badlands or Oregon or someplace.

But Tedder had a home in Baltimore.

Punk rock at its best is a true community, almost another family. Tedder was one of those distant cousins I was always glad to see around; always interested to catch up with- see what he was up to next.

There will be a memorial for Dave Tedder today at noon at the 2640 Space.

It’s going to be the sort of come-as-you-are no nonsense affair he would have appreciated. There will also be a reception afterward at the Ottobar from 2 pm until 2 am, with more live music than we can list here.

All of the days proceeds will be donated to Tedder’s family to help defray expenses.

Have a good time all the time…
