100% Silk Announces Benefit Album on Anniversary of Ghost Ship Fire
The tragic Ghost Ship fire in Oakland that killed 36 people happened a year ago tomorrow. 100% Silk was hosting a show at the warehouse at the time of the fire, and two artists associated with the electronic label died that night. Today, the label has announced a benefit compilation album called Silk To Dry The Tears that features contributions from artists affiliated with the label. Half of the profits from the compilation will go toward the Oakland-based coalition Safer DIY Spaces. The comp comes out on 2/9, and you can hear a few selections from it below.
