Chris Devoe / Rachael Spiewak benefit at Highland Inn. Thurs., Dec. 11th.
Local bands and DJs are coming together to raise funds and awareness after a Dec. 3 home invasion in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood rattled both the community and Atlanta music scene.
On Thursday night at 9 p.m. at the Highland Inn Ballroom on North Highland Avenue, the Gaye Blades — which includes members of the Black Lips — and Noot d' Noot, along with a "special surprise guest," will headline a night of raffle giveaways to benefit local musician and DJ Chris Devoe and community activist Rachael Spiewak of SoPo Bicycle Co-op. Guest DJs will also spin records throughout the night.
Criminal Records, Youngblood Gallery, Sweetgrass Salon, Charis Books & More and other local businesses are contributing items for the raffle.
"Our tagline for the event is 'It's a neighborhood watch,'" says Suzy Moran, one of the fundraiser organizers. "We want it to be a benefit [for the victims], but also a way for the community to come together."
Organizers are requesting a $5 donation at the door to help the victims.
Please come out! You know we'd be there if this had happened to you!
