A Place to Bury Strangers

"New York -- Longtime PETA supporter Judith Yeargin fought hard not only in her long battle with breast cancer but also against the use of animals in laboratory experiments. That's why Yeargin, who died on March 2, left her body to the New York University Langone Medical Center (NYUMC)--a notorious violator of the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA). Yeargin hoped that if her body were used for cancer research, it might spare countless animals from having tumors implanted in their bodies and from being maimed during surgeries and abused in painful, deadly, and wasteful experiments. She knew that the progression and treatment of cancer in humans cannot be effectively studied in animals because of the vast differences in physiology and disease development between humans and other animals.

"Throughout her entire illness, she always maintained that, had she been given the option of accepting any kind of cure based on animal research, she would never, ever accept it," wrote Yeargin's husband to PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "The enormous pain so often found in animal research rarely mitigates the 'devil's bargain,' and its concomitant suffering, that cancer treatments frequently bring." [PETA]

A Place to Bury Strangers and NYU alum Marnie Stern shared a bill with Apache Beat and Ra Ra Riot at NYU's now-riot-free Kimmel Center in NYC last night (3/5). More pictures below...

it would have been great to see this lineup without the CMJ d-bags that populated their last show together.

APTBS should've wheeled that dead peta chick's body out on stage during "To Fix the Gash in Your Head"... all the strobes flashing on her, that woulda kicked absolute ass.

All these bands have climaxed. They are now fading away...

4:44: Are you proud of yourself for being a piece of s**t?

hey 7:05, have fun chasing the flavor of the month. APTBS has loads left in their tank.

1:21 - sure why not, whatever you say, hoss. I dig APTBS and that ol' gal would've added a unique element to their already blistering performance.

But she might be a little ripe by now, I'm thinking...

Hey, Jonesboogie, you are speaking of a friend of mine who had strong principles and held to them in life, through sickness and in death. She was a generous spirit who cared for all creatures, human and otherwise. She would never have made crude or stupid remarks about you. A little respect please.
