There are some people in the Kenosha punk scene, or Keno-core, that everyone knew. There was Bert. Then there was Big Frank. Recently, it was the “black sheep” of Keno-core, Daniel “D-Side” Ingram. Unfortunately, all three are gone now.
There will be a celebration of D-Side’s life Saturday at Hattrix. It is going to be an earlier start than usual at 5 p.m. because there are currently 11 acts on the bill. There are also raffles and “artsie stuff” for $5 at the door. All proceeds are slated to go to a savings account for Ingram’s children. (Keep in mind that the bands and cover charge and times are subject to change. Hey, it’s punk.)
