If you're on the fence about the Chicago Afrobeat Project's concert at the House of Blues this Friday, consider this: it's just been turned into a benefit for the Kenya Red Cross, which is currently busy aiding people and communities affected by the violence that broke out after the disputed December 30 election.

A duo of guitarist Fareed Haque and tabla player Kalyan Pathak opens; other participants in the jam include breakdancers Anacron and the Brickheadz crew, "live artist" Chadwick painting onstage, and MC Cap D from All Natural. Tickets are $12-$14 and the show's at 9 PM; you have to be at least 18 to get in. As far as I can tell, nobody's going to be raffling off breast implants.
