Someone stole the Che Cafe’s sound system!!

August 7th, 2009 by

“Yeah no joke. Fucked up. Words kind of fail me. Both stage monitors, three power amps, ALL of our mics, xlr cables, direct in boxes, the sound board itself, ALL of it has been STOLEN. We’re looking at 8 to 10 thousand dollars worth of equipment fucking gone.

The plus side is shows WILL go on. We’ve been through too much already this year to let this even possibly end the Che Cafe. If you’re scheduled to play and are concerned please reply or get in touch with the person that has booked your show.

Please repost and spread the word. Its a beyond fucked up situation and we’re going to need help in getting everything back up to normal. If anyone hears anything, your friend suddenly has a sweet PA, sound system, plethora of mics and cables or notice what is probably our equipment on ebay or craigslist, etc, please please please contact us. Specifically:
Mackie 16 Channel 1604 VLZ Pro
2 X QSC RMX 1450
1 X QSC RMX 2450

Fuck you to whatever piece of garbage broke in and ransacked the place. A police report has been filed. This problem will be solved.”

This is bad news! Che Cafe is an all volunteer run collective space that has been putting on all ages shows in San Diego for decades-if you know anything or can help em out click the link below


Mondo Vision #5!

August 4th, 2009 by

Hey check out the new episode of Mondo Vision,  featuring three of my favorite current bands: Tuberculosis from South Central LA, XYX from Monterrey Mexico and Brilliant Colors from San Francisco. Mondo Vision is a great video scene report, usually covering bands from the Bay Area, but with the agenda of inspiring kids to make their own scene and document it! DIY or DIE!
