Let The Bronx Stymie The Flood...
As you may already know, the Australian state of Queensland was ravaged by floods over Christmas 2010 and January 2011, culminating in over 30 lives lost and over $1 billion in damages, in what is one of the greatest natural disasters in the continent's history. There have been immeasurable amounts of support from volunteers up to celebrities doing auctions and giving donations, but there is still a long way to go.
So up steps LA hardcore clusterfucks The Bronx. In what is a left of field and yet fucking brilliant turn of events, The Bronx (one of my all time favourite live acts), along with Trash Talk (your 3rd chance to see these guys in a week!), Terror and H2O, are taking time out of their Soundwave festival obligations and are putting on a flood benefit of their own. Its to be held at the Step Inn on Friday February 25th. Tickets are $40(ish). The brilliant thing here is that $38 of that is going to the flood relief! Generous indeed, and well done to Soundwave and Custom-Made Touring for pushing this. And whats more, with the tiny venue that Step Inn offers, this is going to be a crazily unforgettable event. Get in quick - not only are you supporting the cause, but you are buying a ticket to one of 2011's best.
