Texan metal trailblazers SHATTERED SUN may be recognized nationally as one of the most promising up-and-coming heavy metal bands in the scene, but locally, it’s no secret that the men of SHATTERED SUN are the kings of BBQ! So instead of organizing a typical crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for their upcoming tour with Victory Records labelmates and Latin metal leaders Ill Niño, the band decided to put their creative culinary skills to work. SHATTERED SUN will host a BBQ/Taco Fundraiser on April 2nd at Revolution Bar & Grill in Alice, Texas, broadcasted live by C101 FM and radio personality Monte Montana! This event is sponsored by COLDCOCK Whiskey.
From 12-4pm, SHATTERED SUN will make and sell their specialty pulled pork tacos, rice and beans – three tacos for just $8. All veteran/active duty military with valid ID will receive half-off their taco plate purchase. Side items will be available – including guacamole, pico de gallo and mango salsa, and drinks and baked goods will also be sold separately. C101 will be onsite from 1-3pm giving out free merchandise, and SHATTERED SUN merchandise will also be available for purchase. Six raffle packages of band merchandise and memorabilia will be auctioned off and the band will also host a free meet & greet/signing session that will come with a free poster.
Aside from food or merch purchases, this is a free, all ages event. A space jump will be available for child entertainment, so bring the kids! Also, make sure to tune into C101 on Monday, March 28th to hear vocalist Marcos Leal and keyboardist Henry Garza discuss the fundraiser event.
