Jared & The Mill Play A Show in the Hospital Room for Fan Injured in SXSW Tragedy
18-year old Mason Endres is a HUGE fan of the indie folk-rock band Jared & The Mill. She met them at the annual SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas last year. When the band came back to play the festival this year she was anxious to see her heroes who she had become friends with over the past 12 months.
Endres had been talking to two of the band members minutes before a suspected drunken driver plowed through the crowd on the street— killing three and injuring more than 20.
Mason suffered a broken leg, a fractured neck, and a broken nose, according to Austin American-Statesman. She was rushed to St. David’s Medical Center.
When they found out that their friend had been among those injured in the crash and wouldn’t be able to make their show, they decided to bring the concert to her hospital room.
“Today, I felt better than I ever imagined I thought I would feel in a hospital,” Mason said following her visit from the band.
Music won’t heal her injuries, but it did wonders for her soul and her spirit.
