Around 5:54 am on June 27th 2013, my girlfriend was shaking me awake screaming that there was a man in our room, she saw a shadow rummaging through our bags. Immediately, instincts to protect her and another friend of mine had kicked in and I was off and running. What would have been otherwise undetected episode turned into a physical altercation. I was able to kick the man towards the door and it was then we both fell and he got up and took off.

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.
