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.


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. 


"A Night for TC"
10 p.m. tonight, Pizza D, donations.

New, sure-to-be awesome barroom rockers Trophy Boyfriends (Alan Disaster, Matt Floyd, Tyler Nance, Zachery Hunter) and Dallas' Street Arabs are playing. There are gonna be several TC-themed T-shirts for sale, including one with Isaac Alexander's brilliant design and one that says "I ROCK TC."

Memorial benefit for TC Edwards
11:55 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 14, Midtown Billiards

Another "Night for TC"
8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 16, Pizza D, donations.

This night kicks off with a candlelight "metal" march up Kavanaugh in honor of TC at 8:30 p.m. Music starts at 9:30 p.m. with Spero and Andy Warr playing solo songs, followed by music from Little Sister (Sulac, Liz Johnson, Drew Wilkerson and Zach Hunter) and theJaffe, the new duo made up of Phillip Schaaf (Deadbird) and Alan Short (Deadbird, Seahag), who're performing for the first time live. 

"A Tribute to TC"
Sunday, Dec. 21, Vino's

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. 


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.

Michael Vassallo, a friend of TC's who shared his affinity for pro wrestling, attended Thursday's WWE Network Wrestling Special and held up a "TC IS METAL" sign all over the place.
