Our 3rd annual Benefit Concert was a success! We were able to raise $950 which all goes to the MEDFund to provide sustainable aid in Peru, Ecuador, and Tanzania. Congratulations to Partial Cinema, the band who raised the most money through ticket sales and cash donations! They will win recording time at Full Moon Studio.

Applications open today and will be accepted through the end of the month of January!
