Free Acoustic Compilation (We’re Track #1)

Are you “a sucker for anything acoustic”? Our friends over at AlternativNews.com just put out a completely free acoustic compilation. Our contribution to the comp is an acoustic version of Action that will be on our acoustic LP due out next month (we’re recording right now). This is just one way we thought we could show you how much we love you, but you’ll probably never comprehend how much.

Benefit Show @ Noahs in Lindon (Feb 11th)

We are playing a benefit show on Feb 11th @ 8:30pm (UPDATE: it’s at 7pm!) with Imagine Dragons to raise funds for Nick Moore’s eye surgery. DJ / Dance after the bands play. Raffles (win stuff). $12 advance / $15 at the door. Come have a good time supporting a good cause. More info on Nick and the event from the facebook event page:

Help fight for Nick’s Eyes with a most AWESOME fundraiser! Rock out with Les Sages & Imagine Dragons, enter in for raffle tickets, dance the night away with DJ’s spinning it up, and more! All starting February 11th at 8:30 PM 7:00 PM.

Nick Moore is a 24-year-old Provo resident that was losing his eyesight from a disease called Keratoconus. The surgery he needed was not approved by the FDA, so he chose to go with the procedure, leaving him with a steep medical bill.

This concert and party is to raise money for his medical bills that helped stop the degeneration and help restore some of the sight he had lost.

Check out his story here:

Buy advance tickets here. RSVP and invite you facebook friends here. Call / email / comment with any questions. And remember, it’s for a good cause!
