      British rock legends �The Who� are donating music equipment to the owners
      > of a popular Long Island City venue that was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.
      >
      > LIC Bar, which is well known for hosting bands at its 45-58 Vernon
      > Boulevard location, lost its entire sound system when the saloon�s basement
      > was flooded with seven feet of water.
      >
      > The Who became aware of the bar�s struggles, when a friend of the bar
      > reached out to the band when it was playing a gig in Brooklyn in November.
      >
      > �The Who asked their people �about our plight,� said Gustavo Rodriguez,
      > the talent booker. �They then decided to send us complimentary replacement
      > gear.�
      >
      > While LIC Bar has been able to stage musical acts since its reopening
      > using borrowed equipment, it was unable to stage an official music showcase
      > until last Wednesday.
      >
      > The enormous cost of post-Sandy repairs combined with the revenue it lost
      > during the 20 days it had to close made the purchase of new equipment a
      > secondary priority.
      >
      > Now, thanks to The Who, LIC Bar�s sound system will get a much needed
      > upgrade. �They�re sending free amplifiers and microphones to replace those
      > lost in the flood,� said Gustavo. The shipment is expected any day now.
