Help Suede bring back the music
Saturday night, May 17, Suede finished a show and had an unfortunate accident. Quite a bit of equipment was lost out of the bands vehicle. It wasn't until the truck was half across town that the drivers were aware of this. Although the crew turned around to retrace their route, there was no sign of the equipment. The band was hopeful it would turn up in the next few days and has even offered a cash reward yet no one has come forward. This is the equipment that not only makes the Suede shows happen but, is how the band members make their living.
Many fans have been asking how they can help so this site has been created for that. Please know the band is very appreciative of everyone's offering and willingness to help. A benefit is also in the works. Please keep an eye out for details.
Suede would like to sincerely thank you for your donation to help them replace the equipment that is gone.
If you have any questions or would like to participate in the benefit please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to thank everyone for your donation to the "Help Suede bring back the music" fund. We are so gracious, and your donation is a tremendous help to our collective effort, we received an overwhelmed response and hope to raise $17, 000 by the end of June. With community support, we are staying positive that this will happen.
Thank you Suede Austin Fans for helping us to
"Help Suede bring back the music"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We want to take a moment to update our fans.
This past week we have spent countless hours and exhausted all efforts with The Insurance Company and Police Department. Now we are on our own!
We did want to share and recognize Leo, a wrecker driver from Cedar Park. Leo posted on craigslist that he found a case in the street around 3 a.m. Sunday, while driving back to his shop off 1431. We were able to retrieve one of the lost items and truly thank him for doing the right thing. This gave us hope that “good folks” were out there and that someone else might know where the rest could be. This is definitely the outcome we are hoping for!
However, we need to focus our efforts and move forward. A benefit is being planned for Sunday, June 22 at Cedar Street Courtyard, Austin. Please “like” the event page and look for more details coming soon.
We are looking forward to turning this situation into a positive one with our fans. Have a safe memorial weekend.
I was at that show on Saturday and had a great time! Sorry for the mishap. Please let me know if you need help with the benefit. (I have years of experience with a large scale, annual festival in Austin.)
