This was going to be just a normal show, but due to the recent events in Puerto Rico, we’ve decided to donate large part of the proceeds to Hurricane Maria relief efforts.

We’re sad to announce that Reanimadores won’t be able to travel to NYC from Puerto Rico until Friday, as the airport is still not fully functiona but we’re happy to announce that The Disfunction will now be joining us at this event. Hope to see you all there! We’re planning other shows with the band as we speak, but we’re still going ahead with this event as a fundraiser. Please come contribute to the Hurricane Maria relief cause! Hope to see you all there!
