RIP Gerard Smith

20 Apr

The TV On The Radio website carried very sad news today with this short message:

We are very sad to announce the death of our beloved friend and bandmate, Gerard Smith, following a courageous fight against lung cancer. Gerard passed away the morning of April 20th, 2011. We will miss him terribly.

The shows this weekend at First Avenue are canceled and our thoughts and prayers go out to Smith’s, and the entire TV On The Radio, family. Smith had been diagnosed very recently and was only 34 years old, too soon and too young to go into the big light. Here in his honor is the full 60-minute movie made to accompany the latest TVOTR record, Nine Types of Light, with this excerpted from the opening monologue montage:

“I notice this piece of paper next to me. I pick it up and it says- “The End. See Over.” So I flip the paper over and it says- “The Beginning. The beginning will be like- See Over.”And it says- “The End. See Over.” It was the funniest thing I’d ever read.”
