You might have seen on our social media pages that we’re doing some fund raising for the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. Here’s a quick recap and some more information on what it is we have for sale that directly benefits that.
All money (100%) made from Redscroll Releases (music, shirts, patches) in our physical store and in our Big Cartel shop through the end of January 2020 will be going towards a donation to help wildlife in Australia via Koala Hospital Port Macquarie and https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-thirsty-koalas-devastated-by-recent-fires

Mother Nature is cruel. Well, she is at least ambivalent. And she’s bringing the wrath this weekend. The Governor has already declared a state of emergency
for Connecticut on Sunday. So, yes, the Benefit event for Matthew “Chip” Crane is cancelled. That doesn’t mean we can’t still raise money for him. We will. We have raffle prizes and a karaoke machine (which unless we figure out something for Monday may sadly go unused). Stay tuned. We’ll send a message out through all the channels (blogs, facebook, twitter).
Thanks to all who planned on attending and we hope you’ll keep an eye out for the future effort on this.

A few months back Matthew “Chip” Crane was on a fire escape when it collapsed. He landed on his feet and shattered his heels. This is a benefit to lift his spirits and to try and help with the financial burden that comes along with an accident like this. Matthew has played with seminal CT bands; such as Fired Up, Tombstone Minds and Estrogen Highs.
Chip on drums:
A cursory search didn’t turn up any footage of Chip playing bass in Fired Up, but here’s a song and the cover art (Chip is all the way on the right of the cover):
Couldn’t find any Tombstone Minds footage either. Come see this guy in the flesh and forget the videos. I guarantee he’ll be doing Karaoke which is more entertaining than most things in life anyhow. Get ready for fun while helping a friend (whether he’s yours now or soon to be).
ICE CREAM SOCIAL SUNDAY:
Tomorrow night (Sunday, August 8th) at Fuel Coffee Shop (516 Chapel
Street New Haven, CT 06511-7402) there will be an all-you-can-eat
vegan ice cream social. It’s hosted by Connecticut’s best vegan bakers, Little
Vegan Monsters as a benefit for the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. If you’re not familiar with the sanctuary, they basically rescue farm animals that would’ve been slaughtered as
food or that were neglected by previous owners. The frozen treats are being
donated by So Delicious and will be served alongside some home made
flavors! There will be tons upon tons of toppings too. Come pig out for this
great cause. Also, Rick (y’know, of Redscroll Records) & Brian Frenette will
be spinning fun summer jams to set the mood! 5-8PM. $16.
