Lights made a children's book for her niece who was born with rare Apert Syndrome. You can download it here.
Over the holidays I made my little toddler niece, Fern, who was born with rare Apert Syndrome, a book about a little girl with Apert. I wanted her to have some reading material that featured a person with four digit hands, surgery scars, a hearing aid and ortho boots (to name a few of things she will be raised dealing with) because there are pretty much no books that she can relate to on that level. If any little one you know of has Apert Syndrome, pass it on to their fam.

Facebook is rolling out a feature to sell concert tickets directly through event pages.
The company is introducing a “Buy Tickets” button, which people can use to, well, buy tickets to events without leaving Facebook. The tickets, when purchased, will be available for pickup at Will Call windows — there will not be electronic or paper tickets, at least for now. The functionality is going live today in a limited release.

Brandon Carlisle, drummer for Teenage Bottlerocket, is currently in a coma.
Hi friends and family. This is a tough one. Here goes. My brother Brandon Carlisle is in a coma. His roommate found him yesterday around 11 am and he was unresponsive. The paramedics showed up at his house shortly after and his heart wasn't beating. They got it going and it gave out again in the ambulance. They got his heart started again and it stopped beating in the icu unit where the doctors were able to get his heart going again a third time. The scary part is the swelling to Brandon's brain due to lack of oxygen and blood flow. His body temperature was 88 degrees when he arrived at the icu. I'm pretty sure...

Emperor X recently underwent treatment for, and has survived, testicular cancer.
I had testicular cancer this summer. Surgery and chemo treatment sucked. It worked flawlessly. Now i don't have cancer anymore. Posting this feels like tearing off a band aid. I tend to hide worrisome facts about myself because I hate it when people worry about me. But now that I survived cancer (?!? that still feels insane to type) I have the elated survivor's burden to boost awareness, so it's time to let you know what's up. Women and men friends of mine, today, right now, for me, no matter where you are, I urge you: gently and thoroughly prod all of your spongy dangly self-examinable tissue with no...

Antony has posted a message on Facebook after the Pope reportedly met with Kim Davis (ugh) last week.
Apparently Pope Francis was working behind the scenes to undermine gay rights in America. How shameful and pathetic of him. I have been so impressed with his approach to climate and his call to end the death penalty in the US. But for him to make insidious comments about how the "traditional family" is under threat (presumably from gay marriage) and then to secretly meet that poor misguided cretin Kim Davis... I am glad that he is mobilizing his flock to care about nature, but i would still prefer that they would all just go to their heaven now and leave the rest of humanity and nature...

Viet Cong will finally change their name.
Art and music are about creative expression. However, our band name is not our cause, and we are not going to fight for it. This is not what our band is about. There are many individuals more eloquent than us who have recently had a lot to say about the topic of the name and our appropriation of the name Viet Cong. For more insights into the arguments we encourage you to read some of these. We are a band who want to make music and play our music for our fans. We are not here to cause pain or remind people of atrocities of the past.

The truth is, we’ve been planning to change the band name for the next record for months; it has not been an...

The band Speedy Ortiz have put together a flyer they're putting up at shows to create a safe space for concert goers.
We're back on the road today, but we're bringing something new with us: (574) 404-SAFE, our help hotline you can text if you are being harassed or feel unsafe at a Speedy Ortiz show.Texts will go to us and we will work with venue security to try and get you out of harm's way. It's a new system we're trying out and we're sure it will require tweaks along the way, but we hope in the long run it can make our shows safer and more fun for everyone.

The Wedding released a statement regarding their current status as a band after over a year of being off of the road.
No, we didn't break up. We just went on an unplanned indefinite hiatus (to put it in "band" terms). For those that followed the band since the beginning you know we were road dogs. 200+ shows a year for nearly a decade. We were almost never home. And we liked it that way. We've all learned to love being home, too. It's been more of a struggle to adjust for some than others but all in all this is a good season. Will we play shows again? Maybe. Will we make another record? Maybe. What are the chances? To be honest, I don't think any of us have any idea. Touring and records...

Tampa, Floridian band Ovid's Withering have broken up.
Regretfully, I am quitting Ovid's Withering. Recently, we have discovered inexcusable actions by Aaron Rodriguez. Multiple sources have come forward and confirmed that he solicited inappropriate pictures from underage girls. I, without any doubt, believe these accusations to be true and am disavowing him publicly. I, along with the rest of the band, am disgusted by these revelations.

The victims of his indiscretions deserve vindication and I encourage anyone with additional information/accusations to come forward (anonymously or otherwise). He will try to lie his way out of the situation so any additional information is useful....

The flip side is that as things have grown, so has the amount of confusion caused by the name Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr. Some of it is no big deal and easily cleared up. But sometimes we get sad and bizarre requests sent to our social media sites or emailed to people we work with. We’ve had people drive long distances to shows only to be disappointed when they realize it’s a neurotic Jew and wild haired gentile from Detroit they’ve paid to see. A number of times now we’ve received hope filled inquiries from people who have dying relatives that only want to meet Dale Earnhardt Jr (the driver) before they pass. Those sorts of interactions...

Brandon Roundtree, formerly of Conditions, explains on Facebook why he called it quits.
I stopped playing music because I hated how dependent it made me on other people. My faith in what I was doing felt like a trapeze artist flailing from bar to bar, barely keeping in motion. I would sporadically meet amazing, naturally supportive people amongst the oceans of consumers and they would keep me going momentarily...only to inevitably be let down again at such an exponentially gargantuan rate that I would feel my personality change. I stopped playing music because I am a happy, extremely positive, and supportive person. I am back...and I buy music.
