Below is a letter from Men, Women & Children about how all of their equipment was stolen. And when I say all, I mean all. If there is anything you can do to help them get back on their feet, please head to their MySpace page and click the donate button; buying merch, or their album and songs on iTunes, will also do wonders for them. Every little bit helps! In upbeat news, though, the band has posted a new song, "Time For The Future," on MySpace.

The Breast Cancer website is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota for donating at least one free mammogram each day to an underprivileged woman. It only takes a few seconds to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" (the rectangular pink button in the middle). There's no financial obligation; it doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammograms in exchange for advertising. Here's the web site! Please pass it along to people you know:

Hey guys! I'm starting to put together a rather extensive list of venues in major cities across the US and Canada right now that will be covered in a future section for venues. Members and bands will be able to talk about shows at specific venues and both bands and members can rate their experiences at that certain venue.

What would really help out my building of this section would be if you respond with the names of the major venues in your city. Please list the venue, city and state.

In the future, there will be more news to come about this section. Get stoked!
