vanexplosionorbust.jpgThe rumor about Cobra Starship’s Gabe Saporta dying in a bus accident turned out to be untrue, but fellow Warped Tour trekkers You Me And Everyone We Know, who were one of the better new bands I heard during my time at the all-day parking lot affair, had a transportation mishap of their own last week: Their van went up in flames while on the road, and while they managed to salvage their equipment, they lost pretty much everything else, including $500 and all of their clothes. Poor kids. [You Me And Everyone We Know's MySpace Blog via Buzzgrinder]

    i just saw them play about 10 days ago, just glad they’re all okay.

    These guys just got done playing a pick-up basketball game: sandals vs. Vans

    Their music is definitely NOT my cup of tea, but after listening to the tracks on their myspace, I was surprised that they had “none” for the Label section. Seems like a no brainer for labels. If they really aren’t signed, I’m willing to bet they have a manager that’s telling them to hold out for a Major.

    wow. That has to suck pretty bad. Here’s to hoping they can raise funds for a new van.

    i’m glad you liked them Maura! they are wonderful – their EP was given away for free online months ago, and it was a great idea – because its a great cd (note: does not work for shitty cds.) anyway, i went to the show in atlanta, and had a bad feeling about it when i didn’t see their merch set up and found out their van caught fire. the blog pictures are pretty insane. i helped them set up a paypal for donations, you know, if anyone is interested. i’ve only seen a few songs live at bamboozle, and have never met them, but their music is pretty great for what it is.

    @Janelleyo: yes, they were quite good! they also had an adorable merch booth that was decorated in the style of a backyard tiki party. (i’m guessing all that stuff went up as well, since there was a lot of paper.)
