Even better, Shattered Sun will be performing at two disaster relief shows in San Antonio, TX and Corpus Christi, TX this weekend. They will be taking donations and canned food, along with having part of the money raised from cover charges go to charity. Read their full statement below.
"Good morning our fellow Texans. After much deliberation about the shows this weekend in Corpus Christi and San Antonio we have decided to keep the shows alive. We spoke to all the bands and both venues and decided mutually to turn these shows into disaster relief shows. We simply couldn't sit back and do nothing. I know there are plenty of people out there struggling and we must do our part to help the city and state that made us who we are today. Saturday's show, we teamed up with The House of Rock – $10 at the door, but can knock that down to half price by bringing a few canned goods to donate. If you don't have canned goods or a donation, a portion of your cover will be donated to those in need at this trying time. We will leave everyone with this, we definitely know that this isn't a time for shows and metal. We almost canceled all together but we didn't want to give up that easy. We want to help the place we all call home in any way we can, and this is the best way we know how. If you can't make it this weekend we truly understand but for those that can, please follow our lead by lending a hand to your fellow Texans in need. Come have a good time for a good cause!"
These bands join a growing group of artists lending their time and talent to help out the Houston area. Blink-182 have also launched a limited-edition "Houston Relief Tee" tee, pledging to donate all proceeds from the sales of the shirt to hurricane relief efforts.
Fall Out Boy announced that they'll donate all proceeds from their upcoming Houston concert to hurricane relief efforts.
Blink's Mark Hoppus is spearheading the #ICleanedOutMyClosetForHouston initiative, urging fans to donate lightly-used clothes to those in Houston affected by the hurricane. Get the details on that donation effort right here.
