Just found out one of my hardcore heros mike kirsch, who recently came out as being transgender apparently had leukemia. Mike was a the driving force between so many bands: torches to Rome, navio forge, pinhead gunpowder, fuel, please inform the captain this is a hijack, baader brains, bread and circuits. She's been fighting this since earlier this year and I guess passed away this am. She was such a positive force within the hardcore scene for the last 20 years of bands. Super bummed.
