Houston, TX didn’t receive a single evacuation notice as Hurricane Harvey rolled in with devastating results. Residents were trapped inside their homes and many did what they could to reach higher grounds. Unfortunately, many lost their homes, pets, business, and way of transportation following the horrific aftermath. In response to these events, Victory Records is raising money to donate with a limited edition t-shirt featuring four bands who call Texas home: Reverend Horton Heat, Shattered Sun, Darkness Divided, and Seeker.
Shattered Sun booked two disaster relief shows, one will be tonight (1) in San Antonio, TX and tomorrow evening (2) at Corpus Christi, TX.
The group shared the following message:
“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!”
