Meltdown Festival Donates $10,000 to West Relief Fund.

Looks like, along with “wild” and “hype,” we can now add the word “philanthropic” to the list of descriptors that can be applied to late April's Meltdown Festival out in Fort Worth.

This morning, the festival's organizers announced that they'll be donating $10,000 worth of profits from their event to the American Red Cross' disaster relief fund for the victims of the West, Texas, fertilizer plant explosion.

Gotta say: It's a pretty cool and unexpected move. Plus, when you combine this with the $30,000-plus raised at April 28's Texans for West benefit, that adds up to more than $40,000 raised by the North Texas music scene altogether — and that's just the fundraising of which we're aware.

Not bad, not bad. Say what you will about the regional music scene, but never let it be said that the scene doesn't care.
