Carlos Andres Alvarez Benefit - August 23

Description of the benefit, by Max Fenton:

"Late Friday night the incredible, gigantic, open, luminous heart of our dear friend Carlos Alvarez stopped suddenly.

He'd been playing the best batch of records that night to send our friend Matthew Clark to California in a wave of good wishes. There was no foul play and no great explanation, but in a moment we lost the life of that and every party.

If you ever saw that boy's feet move, you know he needs and deserves the greatest sendoff we can give him. Thank you to Glasslands for opening their doors to this community. Put on your snappiest suspenders and slickest shoes and let's dance a hole through the concrete floor."

All door proceeds / any donations will go to help his family and loved ones with expenses.
For those who wish to contribute but won't be able to make it to this event, a Paypal account has been set up to take donations. Cut and paste the following into your browser:
