Help The Coup and Mr. Lif recover from bus Crash

I just found out from Ruby who found out from Dav that the wonderful radical hiphop groups The Coup and Mr. Lif where in a bus crash. They lost everything except their lives. Many of them are seriously injured. Thankfully no one was killed. From Boots blog:

We lost everything in that crash and fire. We were packed to live and do shows on that bus for a month. Most of us had every stitch of clothing we owned on there. We lost clothes, computers, recording equipment, cameras, IDs, phones, keys to cars and homes. We lost cash.We lost all our damn instruments and equipment to perform with. We were and are happy to walk away with our lives. But now we’re home. Most of the band touring with The Coup has kids, rent that won’t quit, bills, and holiday expenses coming. We need money, because like I said the band doesn’t have the tools that they make a living with. Not only did we lose cash and material things on the bus, but we also were depending on this tour for money to make it through. It may take a year for us to see any money from the insurance company.
