I'm a big believer in the healing powers of club music. Moving in synchronicity to a good beat among joyful dancers really does wonders for the soul.
Beyond harnessing the good vibes during dark times, San Francisco nightclub Public Works is giving back. On Nov. 30, it brings together DJs N2N, Onemohit, Joe Fro, Justin Johnson, Steve Fabus, Prince Wolf, Makes Me Move and Jimmy B for Disco Together, a benefit for Butte County fire victims. All proceeds from Disco Together go towards North Valley Community Foundation's Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund (which is also the beneficiary of Too $hort's 1015 Folsom show on Dec. 21).
The North Valley Community Foundation is raising money for critical resources for Butte County evacuees, including portable toilets and showers, blankets and other necessities. After those immediate needs are met, they'll focus on supporting their community's long-term recovery efforts. So put on your dancing shoes and expect a night of funky, soulful house music and disco for a good cause. Details here.
