It's heartening to see that neither the media attention nor the outpouring of musician support for Haiti fundraising has dropped off in the weeks since the earthquake hit. Here's the latest batch of shows with proceeds going to non-profits working to rebuild Haiti.

The Red Devil Lounge is donating a portion of its concerts over the next couple months to Doctors Without Borders.

Unite for Haiti @ Mighty features dubstep and reggae from Joe Nice, Ultraviolet vs. NTRLD, Sam Supa vs. Dubsworth, and a dozen others on Thursday, Jan. 28 (donate $10 or $15 to Haiti at the door and get a free mix CD or copy of Big Up magazine.)

Poleng Lounge's massive closing party on Friday, Jan. 29 (sliding scale of $5-$10, all proceeds go to Oxfam.)

Kalbass Kreyol (led by Haitian-born frontman Sophis) @ Yoshi's SF on Thursday, Feb. 4 and Yoshi's Oakland on Monday, Feb. 15 ($20, "100% of the proceeds for relief")

La Plebe, Dead to Me, King City @ Slim's on Friday, Feb. 5 ($15, 100% of the show's proceeds will go to Direct Relief).

Tomihira, Tracing Figures, Foxtail Somersault @ House of Shields on Friday, Feb. 5 (sliding scale starts at $5, all money goes to Red Cross Haitian Relief Effort.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
