All too often in life you’ve got to choose between a good time and a good cause, but that’s not the case on Thursday at Music Hall of Williamsburg, thanks to A Positive Spin, a benefit concert for the Lower Eastside Girls Club, an organization that helps develop the city’s young women through arts, literacy, science, health and leadership skills. A Positive Spin began in 2014 as a DJ workshop for at-risk youth in Los Angeles. It has since evolved into an annual benefit concert held in L.A. and now in Brooklyn. In addition to ticket sales, a raffle will be held, as well as a food drive to benefit Food Bank for New York City, with a request for two nonperishable food items to enter the drawing. And as an added bonus, there will be performances by Craze (performing, above), the Blue Stones, EZI, Flor De Toloache, Michael Blume, Nick Catchdubs and Wrabel, with DJ sets from the Knocks and the Juan Maclean—plus special guests.
