Wynn Walent & friends in Haiti
Singer-songwriter Wynn Walent no longer lives in NYC, so the show he's playing this Thursday night (1/10) at Littlefield with Great Elk and Matt Singer is a rarity, but it's more than that. The reason Wynn has been so scare around these parts is because he's spent most of the past three years dedicating his life to Haiti Earthquare relief, a cause that this particular show is also raising money for. Tickets are on sale, or will be at the door. Head out and show support, and learn more in an article Wynn wrote for Huffington Post, and in a video starring Wynn, below...
