Tragedy at 9:30 Club

Over the weekend, Hawthorne Heights (Warning, plays music) was supposed to play at the 9:30 club, a nearly sold-out show on Saturday night. However, their guitarist Casey Calvert was found dead on the tour bus, the cause of his death is unclear at this time. Hawthorne Heights released this statement via their website on Sunday:

Today is probably the worst day ever. Its with our deepest regrets that we have to write this. Casey Calvert passed away in his sleep last night. We found out this afternoon before sound-check. We’ve spent the entire day trying to come to grips with this and figure out as much as possible. At this time we’re not sure what exactly happened. Just last night he was joking around with everyone before he went to bed. We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal. Please, out of respect to Casey and his family, don’t contribute or succumb to any gossip you may hear.

Having enjoyed Hawthorne Heights on XM on many a drive around town, my heart goes out to the band, and to Casey’s family and friends.

DC Police are investigating Casey’s death, but no timetable is given for any conclusions.
