This Saturday (August 21st) we will be hosting a benefit for our good friend Alejandro who is being forced back to Mexico in the very near future (it could be at anytime). On top of being an all around great guy, Alejandro has been a fixture in the Vancouver music scene for the last few years playing in such bands as Dizzy Eyes, Mode Modern, Los Malos, Shimmering Stars, and many others.
Unfortunately, Alejandro is not able to work here anymore, and he needs to get enough money together for a plane ticket back to Mexico, and a bit of money to get back to “normal” life there. Since Alejandro came to Vancouver, he made a TON of friends, and a bunch of us came together with an idea for a benefit concert. Unfortunately, this is a very time sensitive matter, and no “real” venue could be secured, so we will be holding it at the shop.
In regards to our customers, the store will still be open our regular hours (11am-6:30pm), and as always there is no charge for the event, but we HIGHLY encourage you to make any kind of donation you can (really, anything helps) to support our friend.
The bands performing will be (in no order):
Babes On The Beach
There is a very good chance you will see some other bands as well, it just really depends how much time we have, and who can make it.
The band will start at 1pm and go until 6:30-ish
See you there!
