This fundraiser for the Flint Child Health and Development Fund and water drive is being held by Jus Friends; the event's official title is "Something in the Water (Does Not Compute)." It goes down at TV Lounge this Friday, March 11, and starts at 8 p.m. then goes late. You can preorder tickets here. Of all the Flint benefits that have transpired thus far, this looks like one of the most well put-together (and fun). We hope it raises a lot of dough.

Kevin Saunderson is appearing as a guest bartender! Their press release, which includes the full list of performers, follows:

We've all heard about the need for more water in Flint. Many of us have already given money, cases of water and provided sweat equity. The residents of Flint truly appreciate what's already been accomplished, but the fight is not over.

This event is more of a collective effort from Detroit Based Artists. The music business has provided us a unique opportunity - when we all join forces a huge amount of good can be done.
