More in Brooklyn for Haiti

Brooklyn came out in full support for Haiti over the weekend, with a benefit at Music Hall netting over $20,000. You go guys.

In other Haiti benefit news, Zebulon is hosting a benefit February 2 at 8 pm, with live Haitian music, djs, and dancers, plus an auction.

All of the proceeds and 25 percent of bar sales will go directly to Haiti relief funds via Radio Nago and La Troupe Makandal. There will be a $10 suggested donation or canned and dry goods, clothing, flashlights, and medical supplies. Zebulon is located at 258 Wythe Ave.

Also, this isn't quite in Brooklyn, but Wilco is offering as a download-for-charity their July show at Brooklyn's Keyspan Park. It's $15 and available at Wilcoworld, so if you missed that one, here's a great - and good - way to see it.

ADDED: Sycamore will be hosting a benefit for Haiti this Sunday, January 31. At 3 pm, Lloyd Miller will perform a children's concert, followed by Curtis Hasselbring, Tim Kiah, Sam Bardfeld, and other special guests TBA from 4-8 pm. Tickets are $20 at the door (call 347-240-5850 to reserve), and all proceeds go to the relief effort. Sycamore is located at 1118 Cortelyou Rd.

ADDED: This Thursday at Southpaw (125 Fifth Ave.) will be Hip Hop for Haiti relief party, presented by The Wax Cafe and a group of indie hip hop artists. There's a $5 suggest donation at the door, with all proceeds going to Yele. At 8 p.m.

ADDED: On February 1, the Knitting Factory hosts their Help Haiti benefit, starring Fu-Arkist-Ra, an Afro-beat ensemble from Williamsburg. Tickets are $15, with 100 percent of proceeds going to charity. At 7 pm. Located at 361 Metropolitan Ave.
