Last Night: Justin Nava Benefit At Numbers

Justin Nava Benefit Numbers June 19, 2011

All day Sunday, a few hundred people came went from Numbers, in support of The Last Place You Look vocalist Justin Nava, who broke his collarbone a few months back and was without insurance.

The night was filled with good tunes, good people and plenty of smiling faces onstage, all of whom gave a shout-out to the man of the evening, who admitted in turn he thought it a little weird that the night was all about him.

Don't misunderstand that, though. Nava was grateful for everything going on, but have you ever been the center of attention for nine straight hours? It can be a bit nerve-racking, which is why Aftermath (and everyone else) made sure Nava always had a drink in his hand.
