FINAL DONATION COUNTS FROM SANDY HOOK BENEFIT:
Again, sorry it took so long, we all have been extremely busy both leading up to last Sunday’s show and the week following. After pulling all the numbers together, the final count for Sandy Hook donations after covering expenses is $4698. This is including ticket sales, raffle/poster sales, and whatever other forms of income we had for this event. It is also rounded up to the next dollar to make things easier to deal with. As we’ve mentioned before, whatever we made from this night was going to be matched- meaning the TOTAL amount that will be donated from this event is $9396. This is unbelievable and we want to thank everyone who contributed, no matter what the amount, for making this happen.

FREE studio time at Silver Bullet Studios in exchange for promotion help
Greg from Silver Bullet Studio, who is involved in the Feb 8th Sandy Hook benefit happening the night before ours, is running a promotion for free studio time in exchange for help postering for both shows. This is an amazing deal- take advantage, bands! Pasting his words below:
Didn’t post this here yet, BUT
We are already past 200 tickets sold for the Sandy Hook benefit show after only going on sale just this past weekend! That is amazing- BUT, if you don’t want to miss this we advise that you hurry up and buy your tickets in advance because at this rate, it WILL sell out! If you have the means, please try to donate a little extra if you can.
Tickets are available through Etix here. They were nice enough to waive their fees for the cause, besides the unavoidable credit card fee.
You can also head over to Redscroll Records, and our newest ticket outlet, The Space (feel free to browse their current show schedule while you’re at it!), to purchase tickets with no fees. More info on those two options here.
And here is the Facebook event with more info on the show if you missed it!

The Arc Agency presents- A benefit for Sandy Hook:
Hours after the atrocity in Sandy Hook, some friends hailing from the surrounding area asked for help putting together a benefit for those affected. Without hesitation we agreed to help and got to work that night.
Over the last month we brainstormed endlessly, determined to make this show the most fitting tribute it can be. We’ve assembled a diverse bill of Connecticut bands including With Honor and My Heart to Joy (both reuniting for this weekend), Hostage Calm, Call It Arson and Newtown’s own Ovlov.
We hope that this show can not only be a tribute to those who lost their lives but also to their friends, family and anyone else impacted.
