Long time listener, first time caller.
I’m putting on a gig this Wednesday 9th Feb in Cambridge to raise money for Silent Front and Bruxa Maria, both bands involved in a very unfortunate accident last week. I hope you’ll excuse the shameless promotion but it’s all for a very good cause.
If you aren’t already familiar, the two bands’ van was involved in a collision whilst on their way to Paris. Fortunately all survived, but members of both bands suffered serious injuries, and have hefty medical bills and expenses (more details of the accident can be found via the Justgiving link below).
The fundraiser gig features Cambridge bands Culture CT and Ugly, and is at The Cornerhouse - there’s a Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/340618259780894/ (for the sake of transparency I should also disclose that I play in Culture CT)
A Justgiving page has been set up (https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/silentfrontbruxamaria) and all proceeds on the night will go towards that. Both bands and the venue have agreed to donate their fee, and we will be taking donations on the night.
If you missed the London fundraiser last week at New River studios and/or you are local to Cambridge then make sure to come along, and if further afield there is a fundraiser on Sunday at the Brudenell in Leeds.
