The Haitian people are going to need a lot of help for a long time to come, so we'll continue to pass along interesting fundraisers as they come along. On Saturday night, a group of LA-based writers and musicians are putting together Listen! Dance! Stand with Haiti! A Night of Readings, Music and Dance in Solidarity with the Haitian People. Proceeds from the evening will benefit Partners in Health.

Coordinated by writer Ben Ehrenreich, the evening will feature poets and novelists (including Doug Kearney, Jen Hofer, Tisa Bryant, Maggie Nelson, Will Alexander, Gloria Alvarez, Percival Everett, Sesshu Foster, Veronica Gonzales, Chris Kraus, Abel Salas) reading their works. The evening will also feature live music from Ceci Bastida and Domingo Siete, and DJ sets from Glenn Red, Concise and Gomez comes alive.

Listen! Dance! Stand with Haiti!
