Austin, TX  was hit with overnight flash floods on the evening of October 31, and amongst those whose lives were messed with is our pal, Preston Maddox.   Some of you know him from the Austin tech-metal powerhouse Bloody Knives and if you’ve spent any time with him at all, you know he’d be the first person to try and help someone else out of a jam.

Preston’s dwelling was insured, but not the contents — all of his stuff was destroyed.

There’s a benefit planned at Beerland for December 19 featuring The Dead Space, Eets Feats, Foreign Mothers, The Golden Ghetto, 10101, DJ Johnny Vomitnoise and free BBQ from Live Oak.  but if you cannot attend, please give what you can. This is a miserable thing to go thru, but it’s way easier if your friends can help.  If you’d like to assist but cannot attend, donations are being accepted here.
