BOM Shankar! Massive HUGE outpouring of love and healing for our dear friend Cheb I Sabbah, who has recently heard the devastating news he has stage 4 cancer. Without health insurance, the dance and culture communities of the Bay Area are coming together in celebration of his life and of his contribution to the music scene, to give thanks and resources for his cancer treatment.
Because he will need tens of thousands of dollars (see www.chebisabbah.org ) to pay for treatments and is not able to work at this time, this is a 100% benefit to cover his life and medical expenses and support our friend.
1015 Folsom is generously gifting the whole Club for our friend in thanks to his dedicated years of service to the dance and music community and for his impact on art and culture in our community.
*** Massive Alter for Prayers, thoughts, feelings to Chebiji ***

Come early for a special opening DI set at 9pm weaving the music of Cheb i Sabbah, with dance performances in front of an altar we are creating for Chebiji.
