Manimal Records Haiti Benefit with Nico Vega & more, Tonight @ Echoplex

ManimalFrom the organizers:

“Sponsored by Manimal Vinyl, all of the proceeds will assist the Red Cross in providing relief in the wake of the Haitian Earthquake.

The confirmed lineup so far is Nico Vega, Adanowsky with Jenny O., SoKo, Corridor and Pizza! We have been told that there might be more acts added. Price of admission will be $10.”

Since the creation of the flier LA Ladies Choir & Marc Ribot have been added to the bill.

While we’re here, can someone tell me what the hell the deal is with Pizza! No doubt they’re fine kids to be involved here with this benefit, but I see that name in print and couldn’t be less inclined to check out a band based on their name. You don’t have to take yourselves too seriously, but just maybe slightly more serious than to name yourselves Pizza!
