THIS SATURDAY - A Night Like This : A Benefit for The American Cancer Society


Now that thanks has been given and Friday is back from black, we've got one more show before we stick a fork in 2012. 

This Saturday, we will be performing as part of a very special night at The Brighton Bar along with Dave Hill, Spanish Waves, The Anderson Council and Miss Ohio to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

This show is particularly personal to us as Mark's wife Erin lost her battle with breast cancer this past October.  When Erin was sick, a local Red Bank woman (Social-Butterfly Debbie) put together a benefit concert to help Mark and Erin cover some of the massive expenses.  Both Mark and Erin were extremely moved by the community's support, and even though Erin was not able to successfully recover, it was extremely important to Mark to "pay it forward".  In fact, it was at Erin's benefit that he first pitched the idea of doing a benefit for the American Cancer Society.

It is with that spirit and goal in mind that we put together "A Night Like This : A Benefit for The American Cancer Society"
(yes, it's a Cure reference)
Joining us on Saturday night will be Miss Ohio, The Anderson Council, Dave Hill, Spanish Waves and hopefully you as well.  As Mark so eloquently put it, "inspired by the kindness of Social-Butterfly Debbie, this show is just a bunch of guys like me paying it forward, just like Debbie wanted it. God bless her heart. It is also for all the people, like my late, great wife Erin, who didn't get to see the end of cancer. "

We hope you can join us in helping The American Cancer Society and giving our good friend Erin a very fond (and very loud) farewell.

2012 IPO New York Postponed


We wanted to give you all a heads up that this year's 2012 International Pop Overthrow New York festival has been postponed until the Spring as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  David Bash felt that postponing the festival was the best decision and we're all in agreement. 

We'll be posting another update about Hurricane Sandy in the next few days, once we have a chance to get our thoughts together.

We hope you are all safe and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
