Last week due to an act of violence that may never be understood, a great friend was taken from us and a great person was taken from the world. Mitch Dubey a dear friend of Community Records, a fellow musician, Andy Tabar of The Flaming Tsunami’s roomate, & all around amazing human being was shot & killed in his own home.
Here’s a great article about his memorial service on New Haven Independent with a video of Emily (Andy’s girlfriend & another roommate) speaking about Mitch and here’s another article explaining more so what happened.
