new hang, new cd, benefit

Posted in news, performance on January 20, 2008 by mojomonkeys

hey…. we’ve been sold out for a while, but we’ve cooked up a brand new batch of our “hang” cds version .03…… these have a red disk instead of the old yellow one, and the proper song order. i know some of you remember version .01 with the wrong song order. well, we’re really getting organized now….tell you what. we need to sell these to finance the manufacture of our new “blessings and curses” cd.

and yes, we are writing new songs…. and turning down gigs. i promise we’ll play a show soon.

so, if you need 1 or 2 or 6 copies of hang, v.03, grab one of us next time you see us and we’ll sell you some.

or, send us $15. per copy, and we’ll send them to you, shipping included.

The Writers Guild Foundation has established an Industry Support Fund to assist members of the industry who are in financial distress as a direct result of the Writers Guild of America strike against the AMPTP, which began on November 5, 2007. This Fund is designed to provide emergency assistance for food, housing, transport, medical and other expenses, and will do this in two ways:

1) Make grants to organizations like The Actors Fund who are already providing emergency financial assistance and comprehensive social services; and

2) Assist individuals who do not qualify for other organizations, or whose financial need is greater than those organizations can provide. The IS Fund will not provide cash assistance but, where appropriate, may pay one or more bills on behalf of the applicant.
