Let it be said right here and now: Vision of Disorder are some fucking stand-up dudes.
Maybe it’s something about the water on Long Island that makes us all rad, but I can tell you, both from experience and from their actions, that the V.O.D. dudes are salt of the Earth.
Today, the band revealed that all of the proceeds from their upcoming headlining concert in Brooklyn will be donated to the Red Cross in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
What was going to be just a headlining gig is now “Picking Up Change: Hardcore For Hurricane Relief.”
Vision of Disorder decided to donate the funds after witnessing the catastrophic demolition across Long Island and the rest of the Tri-State area as Sandy surged through the region two weeks ago.
The show is set for the Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 24. No more confusion. You need to go.
“Our hearts go out to those severely affected by this tragic incident,” V.O.D. said in a statement. “Being from Long Island, Hurricane Sandy has (quite literally) hit home for us. The music scene in Long Island, the New York metro area and New Jersey have been so supportive to V.O.D. over the years that we felt donating the proceeds from the Brooklyn show was a no-brainer.”
See? Stand-up dudes.
The concert will also feature Primitive Weapons, Yuppicide and Swarm of Arrows, who have also agreed to donate their proceeds. All stand-up dudes, as well, apparently.
“We hope that this small gesture can add to the ongoing efforts and help rebuild these traumatized areas,” V.O.D. adds. “We look forward to seeing you all on Nov 24th to support this cause.”
Show attendees are invited to bring supplies (canned/nonperishable food, batteries, toilet paper, etc.) for area shelters and food banks, as donation bins will be posted outside of the venue.
Supplies to aid pets and animals displaced by the storm are also acceptable and will be donated to Last Resort Animal Rescue in New Jersey.
