...As anyone watching the news knows, much of Alabama was devastated by the recent mega tornado wave that rolled thru 2 days ago. We had no idea what to expect when this news hit right before our scheduled departures to Birmingham to play the Crawfish Boil. But word came through soon enough that the Boil was on! And so Team Weezer, band, crew and otherwise, have assembled like the Avengers in the storm ravaged state, hoping to spread some good cheer and smiles with the rock and the roll. Rock and Roll is a healing force, and we hope to help get the healing started!
Weezer is happy to learn that Red Mountain Entertainment and Schaeffer Eye Center are donating a portion of the proceeds of this year's event to the mid-Alabama chapter of the American Red Cross for direct relief to the tornado victims. If you are able to help out, consider the most direct way: donating to the Red Cross. The mid-Alabama Red Cross donation page is here: http://www.alredcross.org
