No Cancer Benefit for Irene Garcia's Mom

The sold-out event, concisely named “No Cancer!” hoped to raise money for Irene Garcia, the mother of a prominent L.A. scenester who was recently diagnosed with what an event volunteer would only call “an extremely rare form of cancer.” All proceeds from the daylong festival — including ticket revenues and merchandise sales — went directly to the cause.

Organized by local indie promoting giant Sean Carlson and his team at FYF Fest [I HATE ROCK N ROLL RECORDS and VIDEOTHING.COM], “No Cancer!” brought together an eclectic group of well-known and under-the-radar bands from Los Angeles and across the country, with acts hailing from New York and Texas performing over the course of the afternoon.

As advertised, No Age, Vivian Girls, Abe Vigoda, Cowabunga Babes, Best Coast, Nodzzz, Darker My Love and others played “No Cancer: A benefit for our Friend’s Mom” in L.A. on Sunday, February 7th. Sean Carlson and FYF [update: who were NOT the organizers of this – see fixed quote above] are also the ones behind The Soft Pack‘s 10 shows in 10 days one weak earlier.
