What can your average, fun-loving New Yorker do to help Detroit? What if it involved dancing and door prizes? What if it was an excuse to have some fun on an otherwise boring after-work Monday evening? And what if it only costs $20?

We all know Detroit has faced tough times. But Detroit's creative scene is bursting with vibrancy. Two Detoit nonprofits, COMPÁS and the Carr Center, are channeling this creative energy, giving kids music and dance lessons, as well as fun, creative spaces to hang out and explore.

With your help, they can bring even more music to Motown - and all you need to do is stop by and shake what your momma gave you.

Or bid on one of our fab auction items, including a signed copy of Just Kids, by former Detroit resident and musical icon Patti Smith or a weekend trip to Detroit.

Just by showing up, you're in the running for raffle items like a free trip to the top of the Empire State Building.

DJ Ayres
DJ Ayres
DJ Ayres is your favorite DJ’s third favorite DJ.

The Village Voice called DJ Ayres and DJ Eleven’s monthly Brooklyn party, The

Rub, “the best party to dance sweatily to smart music.” And the New York Times called Ayres “One of New York’s best mixtape DJs.”  That was almost ten years ago but DJ Ayres still won’t shut up about it. 

One time  Aziz Ansari logged in the guestbook at a radio station right before DJ Ayres.

DJ Ayres claims to have shared bills with Gucci Mane, Diplo, Justice, LCD Soundsystem, and The Chemical Brothers.  It’s certainly plausible but nobody knows for sure.

 He definitely went on tours with A­Trak, Ghostface and Bun B though.

In Atlanta, opening for Ghostface, DJ Ayres was booed for playing the instrumental of Kia Kinfolk Shine “Krispy.”  What was that all about?

 Ayres grew up in rural Mississippi but is quick to point out that he had plenty of black friends.

 DJ Ayres makes music and releases it on his T&A record label, with his friend Tittsworth. 

 Spike Lee once asked DJ Ayres to stop using his likeness on The Rub’s promotional materials.  The email appeared to be dictated and was signed


DJ Ayres has played parties at the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Museum of Sex (twice!).
