Tonight's Benefit FUCKING rocked so hard!

For those that missed it, all i have to say is hope you make it to the next one.

SIDS and Coffin Bound rocked the house and We thank them from the deepest recesses of our hearts. Especially to the SIDS for putting so much effort into making sure our benefit didn't turn into a fiasco.

Thanx to all those that came out YOU rocked!!! you could have gone to see X and the rollins band but you came to see us, the Madratz Luvs you!

Thanx to Bean for helping us pull this shit out from the fire.

Thanx to the Clairemont Lounge for giving us the place to hold this benefit. Without them we'd have been SOL.

Thanx to the Doorman and the Dancers of the Clairemont.. I know we broke up the routine but thanx for understanding, talking with us and Helping us out by buying books and checking out what we're doing.

Lots of love to you all!!!

NO THANX to the people responsible for rushing Lenny's out of it's current spot and leaving Lenny's, it's employees, it's patrons, the bands that had shows booked there and anyone else i'm not thinking of in a bind and with the monumental task of salvaging their shows and events.

Recently the State of South Dakota passed a bill that has made Abortions almost completely illegal. The only case in which a woman has the ability to Have an abortion in SD now is if her life is in immediate danger due to carrying the Fetus full term.

On a startling note 11 other states have introduced similar legislature. Tennessee, Alabama, West Virginia, Ohio, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Missouri, Indiana, Louisiana, Kentucky and yes good old GEORGIA.

You can find out more information about this startling change in state politics from planned parenthood on their website @ www.plannedparenthood.org

And the only way to stop this turn of events is to take action now! Get in contact with us As we'll be working with other groups to bring this travesty to light. The state of Georgia slipped some bills through not to long ago making it mandatory for abortion providers to have those seeking abortions to have to read a state produced pamphlet and sign a waiver stating that they understood that by having this procedure that they were taking a human life.

If we let one right roll back how long till we have no rights at all?

Starting in January the Madratz! will be holding monthly benefit shows at lenny's. thanks to Bean we get the last thursday of the month as a benefit night. We are responsible for booking the bands and we receive the door. We pay for the security guard and the sound man for the night which is pretty minor.

Currently we are compiling a list of bands that are interested in helping us out by playing these shows for us. So if you are in a band please get in contact with us. Drop us a line here, at myspace or at our email ( atlantainfoshop@gmail.com ). Make sure to leave us an email address and a phone number to get in contact with you.

If all goes well this will be a continuing gig each month to benefit the Infoshop .

Secondarily we are going release a benefit comp with bands that play benefit show for us.

thanx and luv the MadRatz! collective
