The family and friends of Adam Hervey were shocked last week when the 36-year-old founder of  Pehrspace, an Echo Park music and arts space, suffered a brain-stem stroke.  Hervey, who lives in Glendale, survived and is recovering from the stroke but now faces a mounting medical bill not covered by insurance. His friends and family have come to his assistance, launching an online fundraising drive and providing moral support. Adam Hervey’s best friend and bandmate, Adam Garcia, has been sharing in the 24-hour bedside watch, said food blogger Valentina Silva, a close friend of Hervey.

“Its really a big shock to everyone. Adam is a strapping guy who runs marathons,” said Silva in an email. “I met him at The Jabberjaw, a 90’s all ages indie rock venue on a really bad part of Pico Boulevard.  We spent our weekends there, and it was part of Adam’s inspiration for starting Pehrspace.  He’s a huge advocate for independent music.”

Hervey continues to recover, leaving the intensive care unit, and those who want to monitor his progress can click here for updates.

  1. Adam rocks, literally.
    If you can chip in to his medical bill fund, please do.
    He’s a Silver Lake/Echo Park/Glendale/national treasure.
