If the already awesome line up wasn't "awesome enough" for you, well, then guess what kiddos? It just got that much better. Band of Horses and Sea Wolf has been confirmed to perform stripped down, acoustic performances at the Pablove Benefit concert on November 21st (hosted at The Avalon) along with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Tom Morello: The Nightwatchmen and loads of others.
Jeff Castelaz, head boss man at Dangerbird Records (who you can thank for giving you the sounds of Eulogies, Dappled Cities, Silversun Pickups, Sea Wolf and tons of others), will be wrapping up his Pablove Across America bike ride in Long Beach earlier that day and will be heading over to The Avalon to join you generous and loving peeps at the show.
What is Pablove Across America?
"The Pablove Foundation is named after Pablo Castelaz, the son of Jo Ann Thrailkill and Jeff Castelaz, and the little brother of Grady Gallagher. On May 17, 2008, Pablo was diagnosed with bilateral Wilms’ Tumor, a rare form of children’s cancer. The cancer appeared out of nowhere, with no warning signs in Pablo’s general demeanor or health. He underwent treatment at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. On June 27, 2009, Pablo’s individual fight with cancer ended. But we fight on in his name, with the spirit of love that Pablo embodied and inspired.
Every year, the Pablove Foundation gives money to improve the lives of children with cancer, at both a national level as well as a local level here in Los Angeles. As we carry out our mission, we wave a flag for anyone to see. On it are these words: Kids get cancer too. They need your help. It’s not somebody else’s problem."
