Indie Music For Haiti: ServInt Sponsoring Haiti Benefit Concert on Feb. 2nd in Washington, D.C.
We at ServInt are working with one of our clients, D.C. area recording studio and custom music house Asparagus Media, to put together a fundraising concert to benefit Voice Of Haiti, a charity that’s been working for years to promote sustainable development in the country. The wonderful folks at DC9 join us as sponsors and hosts for the evening.
We believe in the power of the Internet, and so we’re asking you to help us make this project a success. Our goal was to gather up the best grassroots, indie musicians we knew in the area to help make a difference. The concert benefits a charity that fits this grassroots theme. This group is Washington, D.C. based, and has spent years building sustainable development projects in Haiti, trying to help people develop resources such as drinking water wells that allow them to move from populated areas like Port Au Prince. We are incredibly excited to be a part of this, and hope to use this as a template for future projects. Spread the word, and help us pack the house!
Here’s a look at the lineup, a great mix of punk, ska and world music stylings:
–Tommy T (of Gogol Bordello) and his Abyssinia Roots Collective
–Sitali (vocalist from Thievery Corporation)
–Eastern Standard Time
–David “Spoonboy” Combs (of The Max Levine Ensemble)
–Rosemond Jolissaint (award-winning Haitian musician)
Tickets are $15, with every penny going to http://www.voiceofhaiti.org.
If you will be in or around the Washington, D.C. area on February 2nd, please come join us for a night of great indie music for a wonderful cause. Stop by the event’s Facebook page to RSVP.
And remember: if you can’t make it… DONATE ANYWAY! Voice of Haiti is an organization that will provide long term, sustainable development long after the media spotlight recedes.
