Hip-hop pioneer DJ Grandmaster Flash will headline an eight-hour daytime dance party October 11 at Mighty in support of At The Crossroads, a nonprofit that works with homeless youth and young adults in the Mission, downtown and Tenderloin.
Other artists performing at this benefit include dance fusion collective Afrolicious, who ended their seven-year run at the Elbo Room back in June, and Motown on Mondays DJs, host of weekly soul parties now at Madrone Art bar and several one-off parties.

The mission of Project AMPLIFI is to connect the public to grassroots non-profit organizations by producing music-based events and providing unique venues for public education and engagement that draw in potential supporters not reachable by the beneficiaries through their own networks. The Crossroads reaches out to homeless youth and young adults at their point of need, working with them to build healthy and fulfilling lives. Their model focuses on young people without access to traditional services and disconnected from consistent support.
The party starts bright and early at 9am and continues until 5pm. More info.
