British rock band The Who gifts LIC Bar with new sound system

LICBar

The LIC Post reports that The Who – yes, the famous British rock band – has given LIC bar (GMAP) new sound system equipment, and we can’t deny that this is very, very cool. During Hurricane Sandy, LIC Bar’s basement – where they stored the original sound system equipment – flooded with seven feet of water, ruining everything.

So how did LIC Bar and The Who get connected? A friend of the bar contacted The Who (they were playing in Brooklyn in November) and told them of the sad situation at LIC Bar, so the band decided to send the bar replacement equipment – including mics and amplifiers – according to Gustavo Rodriguez, the talent booker at the bar.

The equipment should arrive any day now, and after that the bar will be up and running. LIC Bar has been one of the strongholds of live music in LIC, so having new equipment to continue on with that will be a big help to the bar.
