Local Rocker Returns from Houston After Rescuing People and Puppies!
Casey McPherson might be known for rocking with awesome bands like Endochine, Flying Colors and Alpha Rev, but he is much more than an amazing musician, he's an amazing human being. He's changed the way fans can support his music and social causes with his case.e sessions and he's just returned home to Austin from rescuing stranded flood victims in the Houston area.
For Casey, just writing a song about Harvey wasn't going to be enough, so he headed to Houston with some friends and a boat. His amazing wife McCall took time away from her own business to help create a drop-pin system for people in need to connect with volunteers who could help. (See the story on KXAN) Visit the Fbook page #StrengthInNeighbors to find out more. Casey himself had a hand in rescuing hundreds of stranded Texans and the group to date has helped thousands. He even saved a group of dogs that were left behind when the floods came. Rock on, McPherson's!
High-Five to ALL the local musicians, first responders and everyday Austinites who have dedicated time and effort to helping our fellow Texans. Join Alpha Rev at Parlor and Yard on Sept. 23rd for a cool benefit to help families that suffered the Harvey flood. More details on the show to come! Visit the #StrengthInNeighbors Fbook page to see a video update from McCall.
And a huge THANK YOU to all the Rowdy Rockers who came out for our donation drive to help out the Austin Disaster Relief Network. Over 1,100 cars came through stocked with supplies and we raised over $50,000 to aid in their relief efforts. Don't stop. Check out ADRNTX.org to see what you can do.
