Show (them) the money!

Sorry to bring down the tone of the blog a bit, but I just stumbled upon this announcement on Fluxblog and wanted to pass along the message.


J. Robbins (who you may know from his work with the Channels, Burning Airlines and Jawbox [b's note - he's also produced a bazillion brilliant albums]) and his wife Janet (also of the Channels) are seeking donations so that they can explore further treatment for their infant son who was recently diagnosed with Type 1 SMA. The disease is rather dire, and the cost will very likely wipe them out financially. As you probably know, indie musicians are very seldom rich or particularly well-insured, so any support would be gladly welcomed by the Robbins family. If you have any money to spare, please consider a donation.
