OMG! I just found out that Johnny Depp is going to be in town for the 2nd Annual Sheila Witkin Memorial Reunion Concert at Club Cinema in Pompano Beach this Friday and Saturday. Depp, a former Miramar resident, used to be part of a local band named, “The Kid.” The Kids were good enough to have toured with Talking Heads before Depp began his acting career.
“This year’s memorial concert is more or less a sequel to the show we did last year,” said promoter Martin Chaddock, referring to the first reunion concert in January 2007, in which Depp surprised the audience by walking on stage with his guitar.
Witkin was the mother of Depp’s best friend, Bruce Witkin, and manager of a South Florida band called Tight Squeeze. Performers include Charlie Pickett, Slyder, Mad As Birds, Z-Cars and Critical Mass along with The Romantics and The Kids.
I will be on stalking duty this weekend!
