Survivors often have a lot of time to question, to reflect. Why did this happen? How do I go on? A similar reflection is found in the Japanese proverb: "Fall down seven times, stand up eight," a proverb that exemplifies courage and resilience, or the spirit of what it means to be a survivor.

Your friends at TAAF invite you to attend Stand Up 8, a concert benefiting The Aneurysm and AVM Foundation (TAAF). Enjoy the soulful sounds of singer/songwriter Julie Dillon and the global groove of the band etaoin shrdlu as they entertain an all-ages crowd at the ever-cool, Octopus Literary Salon. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, and 80% of ticket proceeds go to TAAF. 100% of onsite donations benefit TAAF too, so bring a few extra bucks for swag, door prizes and more!

Proof of ticket purchase required at door.
