BENDER: A COMMEMORATION


On March 1st, 2018, we lost a humble genius. Alex ‘Bender’ Buchanan was a man of many hats: MC, producer, writer, visual artist and battle rapper.

The evening of Thursday, March 29th, we — Bender’s closest friends — will be celebrating his life at Babylon, the club where Flight Distance played its first show many, many years ago, and its final show in late 2017. The night will include the music Bender made and the music he loved, being spun by the DJs with whom he worked closest; select pieces of his artwork, along with art from friends and those he inspired, and an open mic for those wishing to share memories, stories or favourite verses.

Food will be provided by one of Bender’s favourite restaurants, TWO SIX {ATE}. Memorial t-shirts and artwork will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to Bender’s family.
