TC Edwards had hundreds of friends. If you were among them or even somewhere on the periphery, your Facebook feed has been dominated this week by tributes and photos and news of benefit concerts. Here's an attempt at a roundup of everything that's out there, with a focus on all the things you can do or attend.

MEMORIAL FUND

Mike Poe confirms that this GoFundMe account, seeking $10,000, is legit. Early Friday afternoon, 126 people had donated nearly $6,000 towards a $10,000 goal. The money will cover memorial expenses, potential legal costs and whatever else Poe decides he wants to use it on to honor TC's memory. 

BENEFIT CONCERTS

10 p.m. tonight, Pizza D, donations.

"A Tribute to TC"

So far the lineup includes Mulehead, Peckerwolf, Crisco Kids, Kevin Kerby and Weedhorse. Promoter Jeff Matika promises more. There will also be a silent auction of music memorabilia. Proceeds go to Mike Poe. 


TATTOOS 

Scott Diffee is offering free TC tribute tattoos at his Rose City tattoo shop, The Parlor. Since he knows TC has a lot of friends from out of town, the deal lasts forever, he said today. He's already done 30 and received $250 in tips, which go towards the TC memorial fund.
