MEMENTO: Boat Cruise in Memory of Tyler Douglas Brown aka Tyler B Yall
Tyler Brown brought so much laughter into the world; he was one of those unique individuals whose goofy antics, fearless quirks and smiling face always made me smile, whether I was hanging out with him on dust-covered blankets at outdoor parties, chillin’ at the Produkt Dance Studio as the day dripped by, or ripping up the dance floors of Pioneer Square together. Even from LA, his hilariously weird Myspace status updates brought plenty of giggles to my life, as I could picture his face as he talked about glass toast and Typhoid Mary’s razor.
My friend’s status is now final. Rest in peace, Tyler B. A boat cruise will soon be sailing to raise money for his family, a small comfort but a benefit nonetheless. MEMENTO is brought to you by Produkt, Kryptonight and Rockit Science and sets sail June 14th and features the beats of Wheelz, Myk, Soundwave, Jisaan, Andrew Luck, Sonny Chiba, Von Dewey, and Nick MC.
Proceeds from the $10 cover will go entirely to the family; bar is cash only and the Islander boat can be found at 1611 Fairview Avenue in Seattle. Boarding is at 1PM; the boat departs at 3PM sharp and will return at 7PM.
Bring your respects, your friends, and your smile- because no one loved a party like Tyler, and this is one boat not to miss.
I am getting really fucking sick of writing up blog posts about benefit events for the families of my dead friends. This sucks.
R.I.P. Tyler Brown, and watch out for the one-eyed one-horned flying purple people-eater.
