San Francisco’s hardcore DIY heroes, Hemorage, have issued the following statement:
“We got hit by a drunk driver and tried to run. He was going 60-80 mph. Luckily, the cops are at the next block and saw everything and stopped the driver. Some of us got scratches but one had to go to the ER. No major injuries. Our bus is totalled and our gear is severely damaged. Playing live is a big part of our income and we are taking a huge hit.”
A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist the band, here.
