Fundraising concert tomorrow for Pittsburgh music promoter, victim of house fire

Posted By on Wed, Jun 1, 2016 at 2:58 PM

Altar Bar is the site of tomorrow’s fundraiser for hip-hop promoter and manager Elizabeth Kivovitz and her family, who lost their home and most of their possessions in a May 14 fire.

The concert, hosted by Drusky Entertainment and Pittsburgh Artists for Social Change, features musical and burlesque performers including Miguel Sague, Deryck Tines, Machete Kisumontao, Sosa, Zeeppo The Clown and The Steel City Clown Brigade, Lita D’Vargas, Liz Berlin, Moemaw Naedon, HollyHood, Billy Pilgrim, Guaracha Latin Dance Band and many more. A complete line-up is here.

Kivovitz, her husband, Oliver Blackstock III, and their three children and a housemate were not at home when the fire happened. (Kivovitz's sister is performer Phat Man Dee; the house belongs to their mother.) However, the family was underinsured, and tonight’s concert is meant to supplement an ongoing gofundme campaign for the family.

The Kivowitz-Blackstock Fire Recovery Benefit and Thank You Concert begins at 7 p.m. tomorrow (doors at 6 p.m.). The suggested donation is $10. Contributors to the gofundme campaign are welcome to attend.

Tickets are available here.

Altar Bar is located at 1620 Penn Ave., in the Strip District.
