On March 3rd the greater Orange County music scene was shocked by a disturbing act of violence which took the life of one of it's own. The incident occurred in downtown Santa Ana at a show presented by Orange County DIY pioneers, Top Acid, an organization that has provided a sense of community for musicians and enthusiasts alike. 


In memoriam and celebration of Nathan Alfaro's life, Top Acid dedicated April 3rd to a gathering of Nathan's favorite bands for a final farewell with 100% of the proceeds going to the Alfaro family. The bill featured acts The Garden, The Drums (DJ set), Feels, L.A. Witch, Santoros, Melted, and many more.
