As stated in my previous post Help for Haiti, I will report about events going on in the city that are helping raise much needed aid for the Haitian earthquake relief. Today one of the Meat Packing District’s hottest clubs is opening its doors for an event that is any dancer’s wet t-shirt dream. Club Cielo, located on 18 Little West 12th Street, is hosting Song, Dance & Love for Haiti.
This event is organized by Joann Jimenez, Jephté Guillaume and Antonio Ocasio and features some of the most legendary DJs and Producers of house music as well as some of NYC’s most talented underground DJs. Each hour the audience will move, shake, gyrate and produce its best baby powdered foot work to sets spinned by Jellybean Benetiz, Louie Vega, Danny Krivit, Joaquin “Joe” Claussell, Francois K, Josh Milan and Sabine Blazin.
The event is from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. with proceeds being donated to Doctors without Borders in Haiti, $20 is the suggested donation. The combination of Club Cielo and the line up of DJs signifies an event of epic proportions. Dance…dance…dance is the theme for this gloomy Sunday. Before manic Monday morning comes, I suggest all FAMERS get out the house and shake a tail feather for a good cause.
