On Friday, at least 36 lives were tragically lost when the Oakland venue Ghost Ship caught fire, becoming the city’s most deadly blaze in history.

James Blake is set to DJ at San Francisco’s Pub Works on Thursday and Friday as part of his 1-800 Dinosaur tour in America. In light of the events in Oakland, Blake and the label have decided to donate the proceeds of the parties in San Francisco to the Fire Relief Fund, which aims to help surviving victims of the fire, as well as the families of those who lost their lives.

In a statement on Facebook, 1-800 Dinosaur said “in light of the events in Oakland last weekend we will be contributing money from our two San Francisco parties to the Fire Relief Fund.”

They also encouraged others to donate to the campaign if they can, which can be found here.
