Hopefully, by this point, you’ve already given money to one of the numerous organizations doing relief work in Haiti (and if you haven’t, come on already). But while you may have maxed out your “giving” budget for the time being, here’s a way to use your entertainment dollars charitably. Tuesday night (9pm, $10-50, 21+) at Cafe Du Nord, there’s a Haiti benefit show with Thee Oh Sees, Kelley Stoltz, Ty Segall and The Sandwitches.
Noble purpose aside, this is already a top-flight bill of great live local bands, so even if you’re one of these Ayn Rand-inspired, self-obsessed sociopaths, you’ll want to grab a ticket for this one. But because you’re a good person, I trust you’ll go as high up the sliding scale as you can. Also, there are no ticket fees for advance tickets on Ticketweb, and it would be difficult to see this one not selling out.
Other upcoming Haiti benefit shows include:
– Sean Hayes at Amnesia on February 6th (9pm, $7-20)
– T.I.T.S., Eats Tapes, Houndsound and DJs C.L.A.W.S., Kit Clayton, Suteck at Elbo Room on February 10th (9pm, sliding scale)
