Our friend and Oops Baby artist Sonny Vincent needs help after a tragic gas explosion put his family on life support.
On Sunday, January 2, Sonny Vincent‘s son, daughter-in-law and 9 year old grandson were injured in a gas explosion that put them in the hospital on life support. Sonny has given his life to creating killer rock and roll, but the sad reality is that rock and roll just doesn’t pay what it should. Sonny’s family could really use some help right now.
Through the month of January, all sales of Sonny’s record “Totally Fucked” through our bandcamp or big cartel pages, vinyl or digital, will go directly, 100% to helping Sonny’s family in their time of need (ie, we’re donating the records). It’s a killer record, and you can help a great guy while you’re at it. If you already have the record but still want to help, you can donate directly to Sonny’s Go Fund Me page. From the Go Fund Me page:
