Missing Girl....

Everyone, i don't know where else to look, so i am hoping one of you may be able to help. On Saturday, my good friend's sister named Laura Hatch turned up missing. She is 16 or 17, approximately 5'7", pale skinned, medium brown hair and and fairly thin. She is from Redmond and i believe goes to Redmond High. Her family is in desperate need to try and find her. Please, if any of you know anything, please please please let me know. You can e-mail me at sarahfeldman1@yahoo.com. Any help whatsoever would be extremely appreciated. I don't know if i left out any vital information, but let me know if i did. Thank you.

His Experience as a victim of torture

I have two tickets for sale to the UW home football game against San Jose State this Saturday, October 9, as my friend and I regrettably won't be able to attend. These seats are in the student section, so you must have a student ID in order to get in. San Jose St. might actually be one game the Huskies can win, so if you don't have tickets and want/need them please email me... bakermg@u.washington.edu and we can definitely work something out. Thanks a lot!

EDIT: Now there is only one ticket available. $10. Please email if interested.

Hey... I know it's a slightly odd request, but does anyone have some empty Crown Royal bottles I could have? There's an art project I want to do and they're so pretty.

Trying to get an on-campus gig

I'm trying to get my band, The Silver Street Project, a gig on campus somewhere this fall, and I'm having a hard time figuring out who to talk to. The ASUW Arts and Entertainment site doesn't look like it's been updated in forever and the UW Soundbites site is still showing the spring schedule, so I'm assuming that none of that information is current (that, and nobody's responded to any emails of mine).

So I'm wondering... does anybody here know anyone that could hook us up with a show? We know some bands that have a similar sound to us and would probably also be interested in playing. Right now, we're finishing up an album and we want to play some shows for a UW audience, since we've always had the most fun playing for a UW audience, from house parties to the Husky Den. Plus, it's my senior year and I want to rock the place a few more times before I become an alumnus.

Drop me a comment on this post if you can help, or email me at micah@silverstreetproject.com. Thanks.

Edit: Got some of the info I wanted. Thanks for the help, everyone!
