1919 Hemphill St. has been my home away from home since I moved to Texas. I’ve seen some amazing bands, met some amazing people, and have learned how to do some pretty awesome things. In addition to allowing some cool groups hold meetings (Craftivism,Relevant Film Project), they have a free store and never turn someone out of a show because they can’t afford to pay. Well bad news bears for my favorite not for profit D.I.Y. venue because it seems to be in the red. 

"A  large sum of money was most likely stolen from 1919 Hemphill. I don’t  really want to explain the details but it puts us in a bad place. How  you can help? Buy a 1919 compilation. They’re $9 and you’ll get some  stickers and I’ll draw you a nice little picture of your picking. OR you  can just donate some money via paypal (rick@1919hemphill.org), donating  at a show or our donation bucket… at Spiral Diner. Anything helps.”

If you guys can help, help. If you can’t, please help us out and pass the word along.
(P.S.- Razorcake had nothing but awesome things to say about this compilation)
