As touched on in the lead “Recommended” for Music Listings coming to this Thursday's issue, the death of Esme Barrera reminded me of another local music scene mainstay, “Handsome” Joel Svatek, who was killed by a drunk driver in 2003. Like him, Barrera will soon have her own sticker. His can still be spotted in clubs all around town.
Click open the picture gallery anchored by the Esme Barrera sticker pictured here, and get the run down on the benefits in her honor on Thursday at the Scoot Inn and Friday at Club 1808, both of which precede her memorial, which is now for friends and family only, happening Sunday, 2pm, at Fiesta Gardens. Our News department updates the case also in this week's Chronicle.
