Upstart downtown Binghamton venue Spotlight, event promoter ThatNewJam in partnership with the Broome County Urban League and 93.3 WJOB are donating all proceeds from their Wednesday September 6th show to the American Red Cross and Houston Food Bank to help victims of Hurricane Harvey. Toiletries, diapers, underwear and other lightly used clothes, and financial donations will also be accepted and distributed to the proper entities. There is a $5 suggested donation for entry and all customers who purchased presale tickets will be refunded their money and given the option to donate that money if they choose.
The September 6th event features electronic producer/DJs Manila Killa & Robotaki and is the opening stop on their nationwide tour promoting their collaboration “I Want You”, which has accumulated over 2 million streams. The two artists sold out back to back nights at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles in July and are going to be hitting 14 other cities across the nation through the end of October. Manila Killa comprises half of Hotel Garuda, who played Coachella Music Festival this year and Robotaki opened on a full nationwide tour for electronic music superstar Porter Robinson earlier in 2017.
The show marks the return ThatNewJam to the Binghamton market after helping sell over 1400 tickets to ForeverGlow III: FutureHype with Bro Safari at the Broome County Memorial Arena in September 2014. All supporting talent are former Binghamton University graduates who have released music through ThatNewJam’s record label Jam Family Records. ThatNewJam is the project of Binghamton University graduate Christian Randell, whose goal is to grow a thriving music scene in the Binghamton area based on unity and respect.
