Last weekend some old friends of mine in Savannah debuted their new band SURT [the destroyer] at the Savannah night club Live Wire. Some You Tube videos of their show can be seen here:
After the show two of the three man group, Jason Statts and Dave Williams drove to a friend's house on East 48th Street. They were approached by a black drug dealer who offered them drugs that they refused. The man then asked for money. Jason shared a beer with the guy and as the two of them walked away the son of a bitch came around to Jason's side of the car and shot Jason at point blank range. The bullet passed through Jason's neck and lodged into Dave's. Their injuries are very serious and both guys have a long and painful recovery ahead of them.
There is a benefit website up for them at http://www.stattswilliams.com/
I urge you to please give something, no matter how small to their recovery.
In response to the tragedy I've made a poster for their band Surt. It is the best fucking band that may never be again. It is worthy of a hundred posters. Anyone interested in a 8.5" x 11" sized print of the poster can purchase one from me for $25.oo. I will print them at cost. All proceeds will be donated to Jason and Dave. I am also giving the master file to John, the Surt drummer so that he can use the image for local fundraising in Savannah.
