A moving tribute on the move


Local artist "Eras" spray paints the likeness of Drew Keriakedes, one of the victims of the 2012 Cafe Racer shootings, on Sammy Scharf's RV before it left this week for the Burning Man festival in Nevada. Scharf wanted to pay tribute to his friends Keriakedes and Joe Albanese, also killed in the shooting, by putting their portraits on the vehicle designed to look like a clown shoe. Albanese, 52, and Keriakedes, 45, both performed with the band God's Favorite Beefcake. Scharf will bring more than 40 friends (including a marching band) in a "Circus of Industry" camp to Burning Man, which is held in the Black Rock Desert, north of Reno.
