Doors open @ 6:00pm
The Vatikan (1032 Queen Street West, Toronto, Ontario)
the Past Year: Anthony started to get massive headaches, constant
sharp pains and migraines. Soon he started getting very weak as well.
He went to the doctor for the first time in eight years. They ran
many tests and found out that he had malignant brain cancer. From
that point on, Anthony's life began to change. His girlfriend at the
time left him. Her last words to him were "I don't want to be
with someone who's going to die soon." Many of his friends became
his enemies. His mom had been very sick and on October 2nd 2004, she
passed away of a lung disease. His dad died when he was little. He
is now on his own trying to fight cancer, and maintain a place to
live. He is from Kentucky and does not have health care or enough
money to see a doctor. He has only been able to receive diagnosis
and has had only a few visits to the doctor since. He cannot afford
medication, treatment or even a place to live. His friend Shari and
SpineRazor Entertainment is asking everyone to come out on Sunday
February 6 2005 to help make Anthony's visit to Toronto something
he will have with him for the rest of his life. Lets show him that
his neighbouring country cares and help make the last moments of his

multi-day event is called MUSEXPO and is an international music and
media forum that will convene in Los Angeles, California, May 1-4,
2005 at the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel in West Hollywood, CA on the Sunset
Strip. The concept of MUSEXPO originates from the A&R Worldwide
dinners that we initiated a few years ago. The general concept was
to bring together (for one evening, over a nice dinner) creatively-minded
professionals from the global music and media sectors -- all folks
who were receptive to the idea of building key new relationships,
discovering artists and new business opportunities in a constantly
evolving industry. MUSEXPO is a representation of the two decades
we've spent building and nurturing key domestic and international
relationships with radio, A&R, publishers, film/TV music supervisors,
media, managers, artists and others who, like you, are proactive and
creative leaders in their respective fields. Therefore, we extend
this personal invitation to you to join us at our exclusive event,
as we know you will develop priceless new relationships and potential
business opportunities for the future. The conference will place a
strong emphasis on the discovery AND development of talent, creative
avenues to market and break new artists, music showcases as well as
assisting delegates with establishing essential relationships with
like-minded professionals from around the world. Key global media
partners have agreed to attend, as well as participate and actively
promote MUSEXPO. Registration will be strictly limited, to enhance
the interpersonal experience and enable maximum productivity. Therefore,
we wanted to make sure that you were one of the first to receive a
formal invitation from A&R Worldwide to join us for this great
event. Again, we encourage you to join us and your global colleagues
at MUSEXPO. We can assure you that we will make every effort to make
sure you have a very enjoyable and productive time at this event.
We very much look forward to seeing you there and look forward to
introducing you to some new friends and opportunities.
