A fundraising event benefitting the victims and families of last month's Ghost Ship fire in Oakland is scheduled to take place on Thursday, January 26 at the Regent Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Among the featured live acts on the bill are Pharoahs, Maria Minerva, and Magic Touch, all of whom are part of LA-based label 100% Silk, which was holding a showcase inside the unlicensed venue when the fire broke out on the night of December 2. Two of the label's artists, Chelsea Faith Dolan (a.k.a. Cherushii) and Johnny Igaz (a.k.a. Nackt), were among the 36 people killed.

Other artists performing at the benefit show include Roche and Leech, with DJ sets from local selectors Sage Caswell, Jen Ferrer, and Cromie. According to 100% Silk's Facebook page, funds raised will go to the Oakland Fire Relief Fund, which to date has collected nearly $556,000 in donations from more than 3,600 donors.
