Just a while ago I read this message from The Grand Astoria and I thought it'll be good to spread it to anyone might be interested in helping the guys:
We really need some help now brothers and sisters!As you may know we don't have regular jobs,some of us live in the communes with non-comfortable conditions,we only live from our music trying to survive. We started the page at bandcamp to collect some money.All your donations will be used in a proper way!We will rent a van for the summer tour (we don't have ours,we rent it in Latvia and it's very expensive for us cos most of times we hardly get any money for the show),pay for visas (we are russians and we need visas and other stupid papers to travel in Europe),buy gasoline and food and record some cool new stuff in Lisbon,Portugal (the studio is already booked)
Dowload our latest record in the best quality!If you don't have any money you can dowload itfor free,just search in the internet!Nema problema.God knows we are always sharing our music for free
Thanx and SPREAD THE WORD!"
