Jared and the Mill Perform Special Hospital Room Show for Fan Hurt in SXSW Accident
They posted the following on its Facebook page on Saturday.
Our friend Mason from Austin was one of the people hit by the car on Wednesday, luckily she came away alive. We went to St. David hospital today to play for her because she didn't get to come to our showcase last night! Thanks for being such an amazing young lady Mason!
The local musicians were more than willing to oblige any requests she had, such as one for the song "Just for Now," which you can see in the above video shot by the Austin American-Statesman.
Besides cheering up their fan, Jared and the Mill's unique concert has earned the band attention and kudos across the Internet and from the likes of Time and People.
Not that such things matter to them, given the circumstances. As the band stated on their Facebook page recently:
We hear it all the time, but it's true, life is precious and we never know when our time comes. We are so thankful that our friend is safe and recovering. Thank you Mason for having us come play for you. You've been such an amazing friend and fan of ours and your support has really meant the world to us. Playing in a room so full of love and hope was inspiring to say the least. Overwhelmingly humbled. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.
