The Gills and Johnny Apple-Eyes will be playing a benefit show at Blazzues for the victims of the earthquake that occurred in Haiti earlier this year. Photographer and event organizer Daniel Fox will play a slideshow with video footage from his recent trip to Haiti. Fox is planning another trip to Haiti in early 2011 and will be bringing all of the proceeds from this show directly to children and families in need.

“We will be bringing them much needed things like food, water and clothes,” Fox said. “We will also be doing some restoration work to help rebuild where much of the orphanage structures have been destroyed or damaged.”
