I know, I KNOW. I said Friendship Bracelet Club Volume 5 would be available for preorder for TWO WEEKS ONLY before I took down the links. HOWEVER in that time some crazy things have happened and a couple things have changed.

As many of you know, there was a recent burglarizing and ransacking and general invasion plus destruction of amazing Ridgewood, Queens do-it-yourself live music venue The Silent Barn. In my time living in Brooklyn this was probably my favorite place to see music, hang out with cats, check the comics library, see bands play in front of a kitchen sink, conversate in the dark basement, chug down huge outside beers and be with friends. I've probably been there about a dozen times but after my first trip it was evident how special the space was and how much history and future it had. For these reasons, I really felt compelled to make a contribution to Silent Barn's Kickstarter campaign to get the space and all its residents back on their feet.

Unfortunately I have very little money so I can't give from my pocket, but what I can and will do is keep the FBC5 preorder open for JUST ONE MORE WEEK with 50% of all gross revenue from this week going to The Silent Barn (a.k.a. if you buy a tape for $5, I will donate $2.50 to the Silent Barn Kickstarter). If you were thinking about it before and let your chance pass you by, please do reconsider and help out a fantastic live music space while treating yourself to a tape of killer new tunes. Stream the comp from bandcamp (embedded below) then download the comp FOR FREE then check the different giving levels and make a contribution not only to the production of the FBC5 physical product but to The Silent Barn as well. Thanks!
