City Pages music editor Andrea Swensson piqued our interest last night when she posted a Facebook status update about "a big announcement tomorrow morning." Well, true to her word, this morning Swensson posted the details about a rockin' benefit show on February 6th called "Gimme Shelter: A Benefit for Haiti." The show features an all-star local band lineup featuring co-headliners Mark Mallman and Solid Gold along with Peter Wolf Crier and Zoo Animal, and DJs Jimmy2Times and Mike 2600. Also on hand will be artists Chuck U and Anthem Heart, who will be selling their work at reasonable prices for the benefit. City Pages says 100% of the proceeds for the night will go to benefit the Red Cross Haiti Relief & Development Fund and Architecture for Humanity.
Bonus: The event will be hosted by CP cuties Swensson and Jen Boyles! Hott!
