'This Is Boston' participants still trying to find missing money
Yet a year later, a significant portion of the money has yet to reach its destination, and one of the benefit's key promoters, Mike Eleftheratos, has disappeared from the scene. In an interesting new piece over at Vanyaland, the entire saga is detailed; read how participants went from feeling good to feeling duped in just a few weeks.
Here's a brief excerpt pertaining to Converge frontman Jacob Bannon:
When we reached Bannon by phone, he explained further. "This sort of thing isn't complicated," Bannon says. "Our band independently raised money for the event, we sold shirts through our store, and gave 100% of the proceeds. We do that all the time; money for the Red Cross, we raised money for Japanese tsunami relief, we've given money to Dana Farber for cancer research. We try to give back, we do what we can."

prolly went to where the missing hellfest money went.
it all got spent on scene tattoos and 15 dollar vegan sandwiches
this just in: Mike Eleftheratos has just been kicked out of CYC
Maybe it went to a charity of Tim Lambesis choice. Or his defense funds
