Neighborly Love Haiti Benefit

Have a 'Art
We’ve all been touched by the heartrending reports of colossal devastation suffered in Haiti since Jan. 12’s unparalleled earthquake. Over 200,000 lives have been lost; over one million Haitians have been rendered homeless. And if those statistics are too vast to wrap your head around, just Google-Earth a random city block in Port-au-Prince — you’re sure to find toppled buildings and makeshift shelters. If you’d like to make a donation to the ongoing Haitian efforts but aren’t sure where to begin, here’s a wonderful community event that aims high, brings together local artists and musicians and promises to be a lot of fun. Neighborly Love will take place all evening at Blackbird Tattoo and Rumours Wine Bar in West Nashville’s 12South neighborhood, with performances from Buffalo Clover, Eric Zarycki and the Persuasion, Ghostfinger, Super Bowl Rocketship, Julia the Menace and POWERBRRD and DJ sets from William Tyler, Johny 8track and RPD. There will also be silent and raffle auctions with art, goods and services donated by Halcyon Bike Shop, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Nashville Rollergirls, Mafiaoza's, Big Machine Records, Music City Roots, The Lost Boys Foundation, the Nashville Film Festival and loads more. Plus, now’s the perfect time to get that tat you’ve been wanting for months — 25 percent of Blackbird’s tattoo sales will be donated, as well. Proceeds go toward the World Food Program, the food aid arm of the United Nations system.
Sat., Feb. 27, 5-10 p.m., 2010
