R.I.P.: San Antonio Indie DJ Jason Gonzales

DJ Shabbytiger
Local indie DJ, sometime musician, visual artist and former KSYM 90.1 FM radio personality Jason R. Gonzales, known to his fans as DJ Shabbytiger, died unexpectedly from an apparent heart attack Thursday.

Gonzales was 39.

To his friends, Gonzales will always be DJ Shabbytiger, a fixture on the underground scene and an avid supporter of bands and experimental artists. His tastes ran toward post-punk, alternative, shoegaze, emo and electronic music.

“Jason epitomized San Antonio. He wasn't a hipster, he was just hip,” said Brian Parrish, radio host of “The Casbah” on KSYM, the San Antonio College radio station where Gonzales worked in the mid-1990s.

“He loved this town. I just can't imagine not seeing him around anymore. Everyone loved him.”
