Pablove Across America: 3000 Miles In 30 Days


On October 10, Dangerbird Records co-founder, Jeff Castelaz, along with his friend and coach Rick Babington, will embark on a 30-day bike expedition across the entire United States, with the sole mission to improve the treatment experience for children with cancer. Castelaz’s goal is to raise $1 million in funds and to increase awareness of pediatric cancer. He will be riding in honor and remembrance of his 6-year old son, Pablo Thrailkill Castelaz, whose individual fight with cancer ended June 27, 2009 after a 13-month battle.

The Pablove Foundation supports national pediatric cancer concerns with a focus on the pediatric cancer community in and around Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, where Pablo was treated.

In Our Ears: Mumford and Sons… new video for Little Lion Man

The PWWO crew fell in love with Mumford and Sons at this years past SXSW, not only as the brilliant musicians that they are but also just as people. They are some of the most genuine, down to earth artists we’ve ever met 🙂 They premiered they’re new music video just a few days ago for the song Little Lion Man. You can check it out below and be sure to keep your eye out for when they make it back to the states… they just got picked up by Island UK which is awesome, so its only a matter of time before they start exploding in the US. It’s gonna happen people… this we know 🙂
