Moby has announced an intimate show date at The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood on none other than inauguration day, January 20, 2017. But don’t get it twisted, this is not in support of that hideous human Donald Trump. Presented by Lilac Sessions and Sunday’s Best, 100% of proceeds will go to the Downtown Women’s Center, The LGBT Youth Center, and the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights in Los Angeles. Moby’s benefit show at The Hotel Cafe will be an acoustic performance, and space is very limited.

Awesomely enough, Moby, who once called Donald Trump an “actual sociopath,” has turned down an offer to DJ at one of Trump’s inauguration events. Just last Monday, Moby revealed via Instagram that he was asked to provide music at a Trump inauguration ball. Here’s what Moby had to say:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”#FF78FF” class=”fistclass” size=”15″]Hahahahaha, I was just asked by a booking agent if I would consider djing at one of the inaugural balls for #trump… Hahahahaha, wait, Hahahaha, really? I guess I’d DJ at an inaugural ball if as payment #trump released his tax returns. Also I would probably play public enemy and stockhausen remixes to entertain the republicans. I’m still laughing. Hahahaha. So #trump what do you think, I DJ for you and you release your tax returns?[/perfectpullquote]

What better way to turn a horrible day (Trump’s inauguration) into something positive than with an intimate performance by Moby with proceeds supporting some of the things old Cheeto hates …

Tickets to Moby at The Hotel Cafe on January 20 are priced at $30 and can be purchased now. In addition to Moby’s performance, the evening will feature a variety of special guests, with Harvey Guillen as host for the evening.


Fire up the feels for inauguration day with a custom Spotify playlist by Moby featuring protest songs such at Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power,” Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War” and “American Idiot” by Green Day.
