There are no words to describe the empathy we feel toward those who are suffering in Haiti, and when there are no words, we know it's time to take action. Gimme Noise is rallying the troops for a concert benefiting victims of the Haiti earthquake, and we've invited two of last year's City Pages
cover subjects to step out of the pages and onto the stage to play sets for the cause. Mark Mallman
and Solid Gold
will co-headline Gimme Shelter: A Benefit Concert for Haiti
on Saturday, February 6 in the First Avenue Mainroom with openers Peter Wolf Crier and Zoo Animal, and DJs Jimmy2Times and Mike 2600 will keep the party going between sets.
All proceeds from the show will be split evenly between two organizations that
are proving especially helpful during these trying times: the Red Cross
Haiti Relief & Development Fund and Architecture for Humanity.
We're also inviting some of the city's coolest local artists to occupy the merch area of the club and come sell their pieces for affordable prices. All proceeds benefit the charities. Chuck U
and Anthem Heart
are two we can confirm now.
Tickets will go on sale Saturday and will be available at all First Ave ticket outlets
, First Avenue, and Ticketmaster.
