Punk Rock Sideshow will be hosting a benefit for Roisin and her family on July 16th. at 7pm. Hemlock Tavern. The cover will be $5 or more donation
We're still working out the details but so far The Departed will be playing with a couple of other local all girls bands. Her father will also be there(apparently he's an old punk himself)!
We're also getting a lot of amazing prize donations to raffle off.
We'll keep you posted when things get more finalized. Until then, spread the word.

Subject: Roisin Isner, Tinkture drummer
I am Roisin's father. July 4th, Roisin and friends were in Dolores Park watching fireworks. Some stupid piece of shit threw an M60 at them. It landed on Roisin's right hand and blew it apart. She will undego surgery later this morning but it doesn't look good. Most likely she will lose her index finger; second and third fingers will also be permanently impaired and disfigured. Needless to say, her musical career is over.
I want this fucker. Media attention will help flush him out. People know who did it and I'm offering $20,000 for a name. Please do whatever is necessary to get the story out. Do so and I will reward you as well.
