SET IT STRAIGHT REUNION - MARCH 20

Set It Straight will be reuniting to play a benefit show for a friend's recently deceased family member on March 20 in Redding, CA. There will be a CD of unreleased material (b-sides, covers, etc.) available at the show. The details are still being worked out, but here's a statement from the group's bass player, Nate that was posted on the Bridge Nine message board.

"Yes we are playing. Yes, that is the date. Yes, we did just break up a little over two years ago. A very close friend of everyone in the band recently had a family member pass and we were asked to play to raise some funds for their needs. It was said by this band that there would never be any reunions of any sort, but this is not for us. It is for our friend, and we are helping him and family out in their time of need. I honestly can't think of any other reason as to why would play a show as Set it Straight anymore except for this. Every band is playing for free, and the venue is not collecting. ALL MONEY GOES TO THE FAMILY.

As far as the cd goes, there will be no profit for the band, label, or venue. I was unaware that the cd will be given away, but I would strongly suggest that a donation based price be set up for raising more money for our friend. It will contain mostly live tracks from our last show, some b sides, and maybe some tracks from a Youth of Today live set we did at Gilman.

As far as Harry not being edge anymore, you'll have to take it up with him. We are all still good friends and we support him in his life decisions. It would be good for those of you that are about to pass judgement to contact him personally and find out why he made the decisions he did instead of just posting your comments on this board. He would be more than happy to explain himself to any of you. Get a hold of him via our Myspace page if you really want to take that step.

As far as bands goes, I believe the show is already booked solid. We only had a meeting about this shit a couple days ago, and nothing official has been posted yet. I didn't think word would spread this fast. Bands TBA I guess. Thanks to anyone who has expressed interest, and tell everyone you know to come out and support a family in need.

Nate"
