Natalie’s presents Helling Yeah! III, a celebration of the life and music of Brett Helling, a friend to many and the former bar manager at Natalie’s. His life was devastated and ended due to a condition known as ENS (Empty Nose Syndrome), and this will be the third year for the memorial. The event last raised money to press the Cabdriver (Brett’s band) record “IT’S YOURS!” to vinyl. The album will be available for sale this year, and the proceeds from the ticket and record sales, with the assistance of Brett’s friends and family, will help fund more research and awareness of ENS.
The bands donating their talents this year will be a special Cabdrivers Reunion, FACE, The Japanese B-Sides, and Fisted Mister. There will be a video tribute to Brett screened during the evening, and a commemorative poster created by Alison Rose will be available for sale as well.
Empty Nose Syndrome (ENS) is a disorder that can occur after surgical procedures in the nasal passages, and patients can experience a range of symptoms, including a sensation of being unable to breathe.
