Cobra Lilies benefit show this Thursday!! Not for the Cobra Lilies themselves, though!
No, it's for Spencer of the Young Animals, who got hisself into a lil' bit of hot water with The Man. Seems like he was caught lassooing a turtle, counterfeiting shovels, and wrassling a bear. The bear wrassling wouldn't be so bad if'n it hadn't turned out that the bear in question was Omar Sharif in a bear suit. The man's near 80 year old!*
So Mr. Spencer is in need of your help for his legal fund and to fight the powers of darkness in general. Also so he can wrassle more bears! We Cobra Lilies will be playing a benefit show this Thursday at All Star Lanes in Eagle Rock along with Young Animals themselves, Avi Buffalo, ExitMusic, and Dorian Wood. It's five bucks and all proceeds to go the bears Spencer's legal funds. To paraphrase the fine Mr. Davey Crockett, "You may go to hell, I will go to All Star Lanes." True enuff!
Spencer of Young Animals, one of the nicest people I've met in a long time, has unfortunately run afoul of some extremely over-zealous San Bernardino cops. Here's what he says:
FROM SPENCER OF YOUNG ANIMALS:
On the way back from Victorville I was pulled over by the San Bernadino Sheriff for my license plate light being out. I was then arrested and charged for possession of a Controlled Substance. The controlled substance in question was a SINGLE PILL OF DARVOCET, which is a schedule four felony and since it is such my bail to be released from County Jail was 10,000 dollars, which means I only had to pay a thousand but still it's a thousand dollars i don't have.
Because I am a poor man living on my parents couch I am asking anyone if they would like to help me set up a benefit show for my court fees. I have already incurred about seven thousand dollars including getting my car out of impound and my self out of county jail. I'm gonna set up a pay pal account that you can donate to if you'd like but my main goal is a make up show (or shows) for the botched autonomous music festival. If any acts are interested let me know. We want to set this up before my court date, which is June 28th.
Apart from the benefit show Spencer could really really use some help with court fees, and if you are so inclined there is a paypal donation button on Young Animals' myspace page.
