Yesterday I was on Facebook and saw that Ringo Deathstarr had posted about the tragic murder of Esme Barrera, who was a well-known participant in the Austin music scene. She volunteered at Girls Rock Austin music camp, and worked at the awesome local indie music store Waterloo Records. I never had the chance to meet her, but from reading comments from others and seeing the outpouring of love she seemed to have been a lovely girl who loved and supported music with all her heart. Knowing someone like that must have been priceless. I want to support her and her family as well. If you would like to donate and help with funeral expenses, then go here. Below is a cover of Bad Brains' Sailin' On done by Ringo Deathstarr. If you like what you've heard you can also email them your donation receipt in order to receive a high quality copy of the track.
If you happen to be from Austin, here are some other tributes and benefits going on for Esme.
