If you have ever been to an event downtown, you probably know Seth Maness, the Third Eye, as we like to call him, who has been manager of Soul Kitchen for the past 6 years and employee for the past 10 years. He is a huge contributor of the music scene in this area and has also worked at Hulaween since the start and before that, Bear Creek Music Festival.  He has worked in every venue downtown ,including the Alabama Music Box and The Merry Widow, and has been promoting his own shows for the past 15 years.

Seth has recently been diagnosed with an aggressive form of appendix cancer which is very rare, only [phone redacted] cases in the US a year.  In order to help pay for his treatments and support his family, his four year old daughter Isabella and fiancé Andrea, we have teamed up with Anchor Cross Cancer Foundation and decided to throw SETHFEST.
All funds raised from this campaign will go straight to his family.  We wanted to have an option for people out of town to give and people who wanted to do more than buy tickets to the event.
