Here's info for a show that is happening on July 10th. We (as in the people involved in Merkit) will be gone from until July 5th, so we need help spreading the word. This flyer is scanned in at 300dpi, so you can print it without looking like poop. Also, please post this on whatever sites you think are necessary! Here's the info:

-THE BOOK SLAVE
The are from Connecticut and play a totally emotional version of hardcore like few others. Here's a review of their demo:
"The BOOK SLAVE is a unique band with an energy like none other. I got to play a show with them while on tour last summer & had the pleasure of experiencing it first hand. The band is comprised of two twin brothers playing guitars & singing. The bond they share comes across strongly live & lends itself well to creating the ethereal & somewhat swirling songs on this demo. It has a heavy emotional hardcore base, like many bands from the 90's had & mixes in some shoe-gazey melodies & guitar tinkering. This isn't wimpy in the least, as this review might have led you to believe. The guitars are played so hard that you can hear them striking the strings. Shouted vocals & driving progressions keep this well within hardcore guidelines, but the personal, somber lyrics & damn fine layout have a feel all it's own.
Listen//Watch: http://www.myspace.com/thebookslave (regardless of what their myspace says, the show is at Nevin's)

-MERKIT
We'll be fresh off of tour and tight as fuck. Bring the noise.

-PANZRAM
Two men relieving themselves musically. Ugly & bad emotions come spewing out.

-AUTARKEIA
Two parts JIYUNA with female vocals offer up epic hardcore like Ft. Myers does.

-DAVID HUTCHINSON
Hell of a guy playing solo acoustic. Will he have a mustache? You'll have to wait and see.

Hey, I work with southwest Florida M.A.D.D. and the Lee county Police Department setting up things for the Victim Impact Panel which is a court-ordered meeting for D.U.I. offenders to attend. It features speakers that are victims or family of victims that have been affected by drunk driving. We are looking for speakers! It's the first Thursday of every month at the courthouse downtown. If you or someone you know has a story about how drunk driving has affected your life and you would like to speak at one of our panels, that would be great! Contact me for questions or information and tell me your story! It could just be your story that affects someone . . .
You can contact me either on here or by phone: (239) 369.0722 -or- (239) 246.2612

Do it!
Caryl Anne.

Does anybody know what these stickers are/where they're from/what they're for? I figured they're somebody's tag or something. But, I was wondering if anybody knew for sure..

I've seen them all over town. this one is from the drive thru at the Starbucks at the corner of Colonial & Fowler and, there's another one in that drivethru. then, there's one by the entrance to the Target at 41 & Daniels. and, I've seen one near that bank if you're going to turn right on Daniels driving out of the Target shopping center...

Bike & Build 2010 [03 Jan 2010|04:41pm]

michaeldgeorge
Hi everyone,

I know there are a lot of cyclists out there... My name is Michael, grew up in Fort Myers, now attend New York University.

This summer I'm going to bike across the country with an organization known as Bike & Build. They organize cross-country bike trips for 18 - 25 year olds in order to raise money for affordable housing groups like Habitat for Humanity.

I'll be biking from Boston to Santa Barbara with 30 other students from June 18th - August 21st.

In order to go on the trip I must raise $4,000 for the organization. The money will be donated to various youth-driven affordable housing projects. So far I've raised just over 25% of what I need which means I have a long way to go.

I have built a website that explains what I'm doing. Access that by clicking here.

You can donate through that website or view my bio on the Bike & Build website and donate from there by visiting http://www.bikeandbuild.org --> 2010 Cyclists --> Boston to Santa Barbara Route --> Michael George.

If you would like to know more about the volunteering we will be doing, what the trip is like, etc. you can access a more formal letter by clicking here.

If you know of anyone who would be willing to donate please forward this letter onward.

*Also* If you have any fund raising ideas I would love to hear them.
