At King King tonight, Ben Lee, Crash Kings and DJ David Roberti will all play a benefit concert to raise funds for a school that will serve the children of the Tashirat Orphanage and the impoverished children in the surrounding community of Tepoztlan, Mexico. Enough funds need to be raised by June 2nd in order for the school to open. The school will provide a safe haven where children receive basic necessities as well as the tools they need to flourish as individuals and achieve their dreams and highest potential, says organizer Marisa Godoy. It goes from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., but the open wine bar will only serve from 7-9 p.m. ($25)
