SpaceWaster, The Punknecks and Maheekats Promo Video

Maheekats will team up with SpaceWaster from Seattle, WA and The Punknecks from Nashville, TN to play a special show on Tuesday, October 28, 2014.  The show will start around 9:30pm at Whiskey Richards – 435 State St. in beautiful downtown Santa Barbara.

Fundraiser for a Helium Lifestand for Heather Mattoon

Below is the information about the Lifestand for our friend, Heather.  She’s almost there!  She just needs a few more donations.

“The purpose is to gather enough money to buy a Lifestand, a wheelchair that allows one to stand easily without strain anywhere at anytime.”

“Hello everyone,
I have set up this fundraiser to raise funds for my beautiful friend Heather. If you know Heather, nothing more needs to be said, as everyone who has ever met her has felt her amazing spirit. For those of you who don’t know her, she brings love, joy, and a sweet talent to this world that is unmeasurable. Her life story is immense, but I would like to focus on a small part of it, that has been more than challenging for her. She was involved in an accident that caused a spinal cord injury that put her in a wheel chair. I remember visiting her in the rehab center and walking out, asking my husband how she stays so positive and so worried for when it would actually hit her and she would fall apart……she never did!! She has been in a wheelchair for 7 years now and she is suffering from nerve pain. A stand up wheelchair would help reduce this pain and give her the opportunity to stand easily anywhere at anytime. Plus it helps with circulation and weight bearing for her legs which need as much therapy as possible. The Helium Lifestand is very costly and this is where I hope the heart of the world will rise up. Together, let’s raise the funds and give some kindness to someone who adds so much beauty and kindness to the world! Every bit counts. Let’s do this together. Thank you!”

If you didn’t know, Heather is the painter behind Cats In Clothes.

What are you going to do tonight?

Come by and show your support for INDIGENOUS ROBOT.  They’ve traveled all the way here from DENVER, COLORADO on tour with a stop in Santa Barbara.  You will enjoy their rhythmically driven, dark and smokey tunes.  Guaranteed to fill the room with psych-rock sounds.

“…this is music you clear time for, and listen to from beginning to end.”
-Literati Records

Plus, we will be playing our dreamy edgy darkwave ethereal pop grooves.  Grace will be joining us on drums.  We’re mixing it up from the drum machine.

And you must not miss our good friends with their indie punk core sounds, Waiting Around To Die.  They are music obsessives. They are infuenced by the subversive and revolutionaries of the world.  Their music reflects it.

This will be a well-worth-it show.
