A GoFundMe campaign has been launched in support of local DJ Paul Zyla.
On July 14, Zyla suffered an aneurysm and seizure. He is currently in stable condition in the neurovascular ICU at UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland. Zyla performs as Relative Q (his DJ moniker), is a co-founder of record label Young Robots and was a former keyboardist in the Harlan Twins. He is also a contributor to Humanaut, a monthly house and techno show, and hosts a weekly online DJ event at Ultrawizardsword.net.
The campaign has a goal of $10,000 and $7650 has been raised. Donations can be made starting at $1. Young Robots is hosting a record drive for those unable to donate monetarily as well.
A benefit show is being held tomorrow night at Belvedere's Ultra Dive in Lawrenceville with all proceeds going directly to Zyla and his family. Another benefit event is being planned for Aug. 13 at Rock Bottom in the Waterfront.
