Seattle surf-rock band La Luz has canceled all of their tour dates after being involved in a van accident between Boise and Seattle. Several of the group members were injured in the accident, their van was totaled, and instruments destroyed. Both the injuries and the damages incurred have made it impossible to continue their current tour itinerary, not to mention an unexpected financial hardship. The band’s label, Hardly Art, has set up a PayPal account to take donations to help the band pay for medical costs and to replace their damaged instruments and van.
