Our friend Valerie Austin was hit by an SUV and dragged 50 feet while riding her bike in Santa Cruz on Wednesday, November 7th. She broke her spine and ankle, and lost a lot of blood. She's had several surgeries to repair her vertebrae. Thankfully she is slowly recovering!
We are asking for donations from friends and the community toward Val's medical bills and her family's travel expenses. Anything helps.

3 Cards Short, NERD CORE AMBASSADORs of Santa Cruz, cordially invites you to a night of music and community with:
Trans-Atlantic Nerd Core Core-Core....KOR (i thought i coined this "genre" but then my 13 yo showed me mc chris [like, 4 months ago] and that fucker had been using it already! FUCK that guy!!♥)
We are 3/4 American and 1/4 British. WINNING.
A culmination of stagnant House-Wifery and Clandestine Lethargy, the Nerd Age is re-written, Punk Rock Style. Female vocals unlike any in the punk genre to-date, combined with musical composition beyond the skill of your average new-comer, create the gurl-fronted band you always wanted to hear.
3 Cards Short is Santa Cruz's first Trans-Atlantic Nerd-Core endeavor. Created by Brown-Noise Master Doppelganger twins in secret, underground British bunkers, and presented to you by the best friends and players money can't buy, 3 Cards Short in intent on making you poop in your pants. We're totally cereal. Pwn.
