PUNKS WANT NICE THINGS (FOR PEOPLE WHO DESERVE THEM)
A BENEFIT SHOW FOR THE MACCCANON BROWN HOMELESS SANCTUARY

Featuring:
GAUSS (Tortoise-esque first wave post rock with a touch of Kate bush)
RAFFLE HOUSE (Our early stuff sounds like Unwound but we're slowly becoming an emo band)
BEACH BURIAL (Just hella mathy guitar tapping and drum rippers)
KATE MOTHS (Hard hitting indie music from members of soup moat and spur and lambs legs)

From the Shepherd Express article on the MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary
On Dec. 30, the MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary purchased a five-story building that will provide daytime shelter and much-needed services for homeless and at-risk people in Milwaukee’s inner city. The 35,000-square-foot structure is located in the heart of the 53206 ZIP code, considered the most impoverished neighborhood in Milwaukee, a city ranked third worst in the U.S. for urban poverty among the country’s 50 largest cities.

Brown hopes that work will begin this spring on rehabbing the building, a former factory-turned-warehouse. The first floor—providing basic services such as food, clothing and showers—is scheduled to be fully operational in fall. The Sanctuary will be developed story by story, with one floor devoted to employment services, one to an array of health clinics, one to urban agriculture and aquaponics, and one to providing an auditorium and meeting rooms for community groups. A garden is planned for the rooftop. 

The first-floor meal program will eventually involve nutritious food grown on site. As work begins on the building, Brown will initiate a “doorway ministry” offering food and clothing to the needy at the Center Street entrance. More fundraising will be necessary to cover construction costs.
