Shows, past & future

The Haiti Benefit last saturday had some ups and downs. Chads words:
"On Friday, we put on a show for 100 Shows For Haiti (http://www.100showsforhaiti.com), and despite having the cops come and shut down the first venue we did the show at before the show even started, we picked shit up, moved it to a new space, and still managed to have an amazing night. In total with the door and Vegan bake sale (done by my amazing girlfriend/friends), we were able to raise $430.00, and $150.00 for the touring band (Ringleader from Edmonton http://www.myspace.com/ringleaderhc). A total success in my eyes! This city sure has it’s priorities in check when they feel they have to shut down DIY benefits for less fortunate people in third world countries, instead of dealing with the countless dying people on the streets blocks away. Regardless, we pulled it together and I couldn’t be happier. It’s an awesome feeling that while spending a Friday night running head first into your friends, eating delicious Vegan snacks, and listening to punk rock bands play..you’re also actively helping those in need."

Sadly due to the presence of police we can't do this sundays Devotion/Give show their. It's looking like it will be an early show and I will post updated venue info A.S.A.P.
