In the wake of the devastating Haiti earthquake, Portland musicians are banding together to raise donations for the disaster’s horrific aftermath.
On Sunday, January 24th, Holocene hosts a benefit of electronic proportions with electro-pop darlings Pyramiddd (or Starfucker to you and me), the instrumental, visual art duo Deelay Ceelay, and experimental dance outfit, Gulls. Show starts at 8:00 p.m.
On Monday, January 25th, The Woods hosts a benefit featuring the Americana sounds of The Builders and The Butchers, vast folk/gospel arrangements of Tu Fawning and indie folk songs of Nick Jaina. Show starts at 9:00 p.m.
Tickets for each show are $10, but more donations are welcome. All of the proceeds will go directly to Mercy Corps.
