Surf rock indie band La Luz was hit by a semi truck last night on their way back to Seattle from Boise's Korah Shrine. The band members suffered injuries, their vehicle was totaled, lost all their musical equipment and forced to cancel their tour. They were scheduled to play at Club Congress on November 12th.

Fortunately, no one was seriously injured. Here's their latest Facebook status:

Last night was probably the most terrifying experience of any of our lives. But we're ok! Thanks for the love and well wishes everyone. We lost a lot of things (pretty much everything we had) and got pretty banged up when we were hit by a semi on our way to Seattle last night, but we're just awfully glad to be alive and we'll be back on our feet in no time. For those of you who want to help out financially, Hardly Art set up this paypal to help us pay for some stuff and money we lost. Love to you all!

A Paypal account has been established to aid the band's medical bills, purchase a new vehicle and replace their musical equipment. Click here to send some money, and please help spread the word.
