Victoria Locals - Support Wes Borg!

Postby Metcarfre » 27 Nov 2009, 17:49

If you watched DBfH3, you might have seen Wes Borg, the musician who wrote and performed "The War of 1812" and "Every OS Sucks" live on the feed.

Just a couple weeks ago, he was robbed, and the robber proceeded to torch his van, leaving him homeless with nothing.

TONIGHT in Victoria at Logan's Pub there is a fundraising concert for Wes! So, if you live in Victoria you should definitely head down there and pitch him a couple bucks.

Not to nitpick, but didn't he say that he got robbed, so he left the light on to deter future robbers, and it was the light shorting out that caused the fire? It's actually multiple misfortunes that have befallen him. And all the more reason to kick him a few bucks.

Well, that, and his music/comedy sketches are cool. That's another reason.

Yeah, when I first heard it, I didn't hear it was the robber who did it. It sucks, but the latter explanation doesn't make me want to go all Punisher on someone.

Yeah, the fire wasn't the robber, but it wasn't Wes' fault either.

Thanks for being so generous guys, Wes is an excellent dude and I'm so glad you're all being this giving.

Hmm, the radio told me it was the robber that started the fire... that's what I get for getting facts from The Zone...

Jeezi Creezi, that sucks. Is there anyway I can kick him some help from afar (living in New York City, which is obviously not exactly local Victoria)?

Drop a few bucks into his PayPal account...trying to remember the email address. [email protected]. Graham, a little help if you would? :)

Consider this signature a museum piece, since I love it and am unlikely to change it ever.

He said to go pirate his music, but if you do, please pay for it by sending him monies. Honor system here.
