Help Our Brother, Alexis Rivera

Our brother from Puerto Rico, Alexis Rivera, has been presented with a truly massive challenge. Alexis was diagnosed with cancer last month, at the young age of 25, and needs all of our help. Please read the passage below from his good friend Pedro Huck Rosa and contribute whatever you can.

Remember how lucky we all really are during this holiday season... donate here: http://www.gofundme.com/5jxgn4

"Alexis Rivera is a 25 years young skateboarder, videographer and photographer from beautiful Puerto Rico who is known around the world for his gifted athletic talents, his unique perspective behind the lens but way more for his big heart and humbleness, qualities which make him one of the most positive and hard working human beings you can meet.

In October, during a recent trip to the United States in which he was working to bring exposure to a group of Puerto Rican children competing on a major skate contest that took place in Florida, Alexis started to experience much pain and swelling in his groin area. As soon as he came back to Puerto Rico, he checked in to the hospital and had to undergo an emergency operation to remove what seemed to be a tumor. Two weeks later when the tumor biopsy results came in, Alexis was diagnosed with cancer, which originated in his testicular area and has now spread towards his abdomen.

Previous to his soon to start chemo treatment, Alexis had to undergo various studies which weren't covered by his health insurance. As of now, Alexis is slated to begin his chemotherapy sessions this friday December 6th. His oncologist is very optimistic of his recovery due to Alexis' athletic condition and his high spirit and will to overcome his illness.This has been a rough couple of months for him, his family and friends. This page was created to raise funds towards life expenses that he and his family will incur throughout this long journey ahead. Please feel free to contribute whatever you can, help spread awareness and support during this tough time. Anything will be appreciated! With your help, we can help chip away at the costs of Alexis' growing medical bills and also help his family cover basic costs to take care of him, including his recovery, their transportation for visits to the hospital and assistance to cover living costs. We are also asking as we get together with our families and loved ones this Holiday Season, please keep Alexis and his family in your thoughts and prayers throughout Alexis' quest to Fight Cancer!

Alexis would like to thank his family, his friends, sponsors and all the people who support his skateboarding for all the love and support they have shown him through all his career.

Peace, light and many blessings, everyone!"

New Music Tuesday #49 - Fuzz, Live in SF

It takes a band like Fuzz, and a town like San Francisco to throw Ty Segall a real birthday party. Well, it is his band and his town. When you add Castle Face Records recording live to document the jam, the party goes sonic. The heavy stoner-blues of Fuzz is total psych-sludge worship with Ty slamming the drums and hollering his trade mark vocals. Happy Birthday Ty.

New Music Tuesday #48 - Gap Dream, Shine Your Light

If Gabriel Fulvimar’s first Gap Dream LP was Ohio bedroom psych rock, then his second full length, Shine Your Light, is definitely more California dreamy loner pop.  You see, Gabe  moved out from the Midwest straight to Southern California’s Burger Records. Literally, he lives in a record store. The record reflects the changes in atmosphere, and the heavy synth sounds add layers to his new groovy stories. Welcome to California Gabe, we’re glad you’re here. Now find an apartment.
