Vans Mexico Presents The Rafa Ortiz Caballero Tribute
Posted 07/13/2007 09:42:00 by i am vans
Recognized in all the alternative cultural scene (rock, art, design, fashion), and action sports (skate, BMX, surf) in MÃ©xico, during his time working in Vans, Rafa Ortiz made the difference supporting unconditionally too many underground art expressions and alternative sports. In that way, faithful to his convictions, he bet in projects like Alison, Porter, Moderatto and Austin TV before they jumped to fame, pushed plastic artists like Watchavato, and collaborated in the creation of the surf, skate and BMX national teams that actually represents our country in too many international competitions.
The live concert will be conduced by Gabo (MTV VJ) and Julio MartÃnez (Reactor 105.7 FM), and all the money collected in tickets will be sent to support Rafa's daugther, Rafaella. She's 2 months old, that's why all the bands, talent, staff and all the people involved in this project are working like volunteers.
Vans presents Rafa Ortiz Caballero Tribute, July 20th, Hard Rock Live Mexico, 20:00 PM. Tickets in Ticketmaster.
