A benefit concert to raise money to repair building no. 8 on Přednádraží street in Ostrava will be held this Sunday 17 March at 20:00 at the Café V Lese in Prague ( The program is jam-packed.

The lower hall at the Café v Lese will feature primarily hip-hop acts. Critical girls and women who are not afraid to sing about their opinions will cover both their personal troubles and societal themes. In addition to the engagé rap of Potmě, the girls' duo Fakné will also take the stage, followed by the alternative, diverse Vobezdud group, which today features eight musicians including accordion, double-bass and violin players. The final act of the night will be the crazy Brno-based women of Čokovoko, who will play songs from their upcoming new album, "Hudba" ("Music").

In addition to performances there will be an auction of original graphic art by Toy_Box. There will of course also be a presentation about the situation in the Předlice quarter of Ústí nad Labem and on Přednádraží street in Ostrava.

A panel discussion will take place starting at 17:00 which will be at least as interesting as the concert itself, featuring two activists and two residents from the Předlice quarter of Ústí nad Labem and from Přednádraží street in Ostrava. The discussion will be devoted to the reasons for the crisis in those areas and the options for addressing the calamitous situations there.

Proceeds of the auction and the concert will be used to repair building no. 8 on Přednádraží street in Ostrava. The Building Works Authority labeled other buildings there uninhabitable in July 2012. Many locals refused to leave their homes, of course, and have joined forces to repair No. 8, which awaits final use approval soon.

Even the smallest donation will be helpful. Come have fun for a good cause on Sunday!
