ABC No Rio Benefit with the Bouncing Souls
For all that haven't heard: we're going to be playing a benefit with the Bouncing Souls to help the ABC No Rio building fund on September 14th. If you don't know of or haven't heard of ABC No Rio it is a collectively run center for art and activism that has been active in the Lower East Side since 1980. Check out more about ABC No Rio here.
The tickets to the show sold out a lot quicker than any of us thought (since the Bouncing Souls have two dates before the 14th in New York that are also sold out.) Many people have said, "Ah, I wish I got a ticket but when I tried to grab one, they were already sold out!" If you're still interested in getting a ticket the folks at ABC No Rio have put one up on eBay. All of the money from this ticket will be going to the ABC No Rio building fund in an effort to steer people away from buying the ticket from a scalper for over $100 (which we've seen on various ticket re-selling websites.) We're encouraging anyone that wishes they had gotten a ticket to PLEASE support ABC No Rio and bid on this ticket and not support the capitalist re-sale and commodification of this benefit. Check out the bidding for the ticket here!
Thanks! We hope to see you all there!
