I won't give you my deep thoughts on the tsunami in Southeast Asia- what is understood doesn't need to be discussed. I do implore you to help out any way you can- give blood, money, labor; whatever you can bring to the relief effort do so.
To that end, please try to come for this as HotHouse and the clubs working with them have pledged $100,000 for the relief effort. Every penny matters:
Goal: HotHouse’s goal is to raise $100,000 in January for organizations aiding victims of the tsunami. 100 percent of the proceeds from the benefit concerts will go to relief organizations.
Who: Frank Orrall (of Poi Dog Pondering), members of Funkadesi, Sam Prekop (of The Sea and Cake), Kalyan Pathak & Jazzmata, The Goran Ivanovic Group, The Yoko-Tatsu Asian Experience, DJ Warp with Adeesh Sathaye of San Fransisco’s Dhamaal, Hicham Chami’s Trio Mosaic, Raiz Viva with Alexey Lanza, the Pintig Cultural Group, Robert Karimi, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Raul Fernandez and Mitote, Michigan Avenue Cantori, Dance 2XS, and Gingarte Capoeira.
