Farewell Cy Rawls

Today we send our condolences to the family and friends of Cy Rawls, who passed away last Friday morning after battling cancer. Cy was a great supporter of the Triangle music scene, and in the past several months many benefits to support him have come together. Visit the blog dedicated to him here.

Cy worked as a DJ for local stations WXDU and WXYC, as well as interning at Durham's Merge Records.

In August, The Independent ran this article describing one unique effort to help with the mounting medical bills, CyTunes, which donated proceeds of online music sales to him.

Music critic David Menconi has also written a lot about Cy on his blog.

Farewell Cy--may your memory rock on with us.
