Edgar Gonzalez is a young man, writer, and label owner based out of the Hidalgo County Region of the Rio Grande Valley. Over the years, Edgar’s support and creative visions within the RGV cultural space have manifested into glowing tape releases, beautiful publications, and deep friendships. Without Edgar, I can honestly say my own shows, especially Galax Z Fair, would not be what they are today. As a friend, his influence and support is deep, both to me, and to this scene.
So it’s from the warmest depth of my soul to express major excitement for Edgar’s deepest vision yet: NO RUIDO | NO NOISE – a compilation featuring the best and brightest independent artists in America, coming together to raise funds to help calm, hold, and breathe life into a family affected by the ills of society- the family of Tamir Rice.
The comp is a massive and impressive act of charity, and features nationally and regionally established artists, including:
MR. TWIN SISTER
Wow^ that is an incredible lineup of artists coming together for a great cause.
To quote Edgar regarding the compilation:
“The negativity that has loomed over our society is heartbreaking but change fueling. When Edgar’s Friends was started we only had few things in mind: to make ourselves and our friends happy, to give back to the community that hugged us when we needed it most. So it is with great love and pleasure we introduce our newest project.”
The release date for the compilation is tentatively set for Fall 2015, and I assure that when more details come through about this amazing act, I’ll be posting.
Until then, please ‘like’ Edgar’s Friend’s on Facebook, and love this vision with every grain of every universe in your heart:
