WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Artists will be in downtown Warren Saturday to help repair the damage done by a vandal in Dave Grohl Alley.
An Erase and Replace rally is scheduled in the alley from noon until 4 p.m.
There will be live music, art and a 50/50 raffle to raise money to restore the alley back to normal.
An after party will be held at the Lime Tree restaurant with food and craft beers.
“It has been amazing. It has been one of those things where the alley kind of started off as one thing and it really evolved into just a center of community pride,” said artist Aaron Chine. “Everyone just comes down and hangs out, and we are expecting a ton of people to come down tomorrow, so it has turned into quite an awesome thing for Warren.”
Grohl Alley organizer Joe O’Grady said the Grohl family is aware of the vandalism and knows about Saturday’s event. He said an appearance from someone in the family or Dave Grohl himself can’t be ruled out.
“Dave is full of surprises. You never know. I know the Grohl family does know about the event tomorrow, but Dave hasn’t confirmed. As we all know, every time we turn on the TV Dave is on,” said O’Grady.
As for the suspected vandal, 35-year-old Curtis Aguilera of Miami, Florida has not been arrested. He was charged with felony vandalism and criminal damaging.
According to Warren police, Aguilera has a history of vandalism in both Miami and San Francisco.
