When news spread that the Silent Barn suffered extensive damage in a fire last weekend, surprise, grief, and sadness were the normal initial reactions. Once it became clear everyone was ok and the venue and residents would press on with renovations, the obvious next response was, “how can we help?”
Like most bands who benefit from the luxury of living in a creative borough where artist and community-driven venues like the Silent Barn are a necessary—and dwindling—resource, Alyse Lamb (EULA, Parlor Walls, Famous Swords) quickly organized a show to help raise money for the Barn’s relief efforts. She then asked us if we would be willing to co-present it, to which we couldn’t say “yes!” fast enough. Joining us this Thursday, October 8 at Palisades will be Celestial Shore, Mega Bog, Parlor Walls, Real Adult, SIRENS, and a DJ set by Future Punx. The bands will be donating their time with all proceeds to benefit the Silent Barn, so the least you could do is offer up a mere $10 to enjoy an evening of great music, friends, and the knowledge you’re helping rebuild a great place. Tickets are available in advance, and if you can’t make it to the show, we strongly encourage you to donate what you can.
