Sleep Control singer James Forgey was just dropping in on Dave Marzetti, his friend and the band's drummer, when he found the 27-year-old dead. He couldn't believe it. Apart from back problems, Marzetti had appeared to be in fine health. His sudden, accidental death on Oct. 19 was a complete shock.

"It took two days for it to really sink in," Forgey says. "It just felt like a really bad dream. It didn't seem real."

Marzetti had been playing with Sleep Control since 2006, adding an arresting stomp to the band's modern rock. His talent behind the kit and, more important, his compassionate disposition helped ingrain him in the Triangle music scene. Thursday his friends in that community come together to pay tribute.With a lineup that spans from the richly sung folk of Philip H. Manusco to the slam-glam pop-rock of Sleep Control's friends in A Tin Djinn, six local acts will take the stage in memory of their fallen compatriot.

The proceeds of the night will go to Raleigh's Community Music School. It's a cause that Forgey says would have pleased Marzetti deeply. "He loved music, and he loved helping people out," he says. "It's kind of perfect." —Jordan Lawrence
