community

Looks like I’m officially in the matrix. Must admit it took a natural disaster of epic proportions to draw me into Facebook, but I have no regrets because I recognize the good that can stem from such connections. A sense of community, virtual or not, is a powerful incentive for change.

Last night, I ventured over to Newark, N.J., for a deep house session at a warm and welcoming art space/lounge called The Coffee Cave. We gathered for good music (DJs Sabine and Jihad Muhammad), good vibes and good intentions, raising awareness and funds for Haiti earthquake victims.

Tonight, Body & Soul kicks off at Webster Hall, Funk Box at Sullivan Room, Langston’s in Brooklyn _ all mindful of our brothers and sisters in Haiti. On Jan. 24, a Haiti relief benefit from 4 p.m.-4 a.m. will be held at Cielo http://www.facebook.com/muzikbutrfly?ref=ts as members of the underground house music community in New York galvanize at parties and various events to donate medical supplies, time, energy, money and our prayers. I trust it is the same around the world.
