Ghostly International fundraises for The Sight Below, who had $50k in gear stolen back in May

Some people have no heart, and I’m not referring literally to the victims of Kano’s infamous Fatality. Figuratively, some people have no heart, in the sense that they’re so utterly bereft of a moral compass that they’re willing to ignore and/or trample sentimental value all for the sake of increasing their personal wealth. It’s easy to think of examples, but allow me to save you the split-second: these guys, who stole basically every piece of music equipment that Rafael Anton Irisarri (The Sight Below) owned (with a cumulative value of roughly $50k), as he was on the verge of making a cross-country move from Seattle to New York this past May. Go on, check out the security camera footage, and assume that the perps did, in fact, crawl out of the gutter.

Sadly, none of Irisarri’s stolen items have since been recovered, so the label with which he’s long been associated, Ghostly International, has generously set up a fundraiser on his behalf in an attempt to recoup some of his losses. They’ve nearly reached their $15,000 goal already, but if you’re so completely abhorred by the idea of an artist suddenly losing his/her life’s work at the hands of criminal fucks, go here to donate. Some things can’t be replaced, of course, but hopefully this allows Irisarri to continue his sometimes beat-driven wander down a dark hallway. For humanity’s redemption!
