It's heart-warming to see the flood of fund-raisers being held in aid of the recently stricken Haiti, following the earthquake at Port au Prince on Tuesday 12th January.
This one will appear to the grimers out there, featuring the likes of Wiley, Tinie Tempah, JME, Heartless Crew, Mistajam, N-Type, The Freestylers, Loose Cannons, DJ Cameo and many, many more!
The night is backed by True Tiger & Ctrl.Alt.Shift and entry is a minimum donation of just £5 on the door. Click the link below for full address info, or check the Den and Centro site: www.thedenandcentro.com

So, after the heart-warming stuff, comes the some-people-are-scum email alert: just this afternoon, we've received a pretty blatant scam, asking us to donate money to some dude's personal bank account nice Here it is in part:
Greetings and Peace be Upon you.
