Next Tuesday, December 1, humanitarian organization NextAid, holds its Los Angeles effort in their multi-date/multi-city World AIDS Day 2009 (WAD2009) campaign. The festive series kicked off in San Francisco on November 25th and will crosses the states until December 31st. L.A.’s event, actually held on World Aids Day, looks to take the cake.

“This event is at an amazing venue, with the best line-up we could fathom,” said Lauren Segal-Avenna, NextAid’s Co-Founder and Director.

A night of great dance music and comedy will be held at the Marrakesh House, the scenic hillside Culver City residence of film director Chris Paine (”Who Killed The Electric Car”) and will feature top house music DJ’s and some great comedians.

From New York, true house music legend Little Louie Vega (”Masters at Work”) will headline. Also appearing are DEEP LA’s Marques Wyatt, KCRW’s Raul Campos, DJ Rap, Turntables on the Hudson with DJ Nickodemus and Nappy G, and more. Ultra-hilarious comedian Whitney Cummings will be on hand to spice it up, and she’ll be joined by comedians Ben Morrison and Ben Gleib.
