Micachu & The Shapes, Polar Bear and Natty have been confirmed to play a London gig to raise money for the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti.

The acts will play the Love Music: Help Haiti night tomorrow (January 20), at Camden's Proud Galleries venue. Also on the bill are Fiction and Chapter 24, with more acts due to be announced.

All proceeds from the gig go to charity and will be split between Oxfam's Haiti Appeal and the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC).

The night will take in live bands, DJs and spoken word acts. It runs from 8pm (GMT). Organisers are asking people to donate what they can upon entry to the gig, with £3 being the suggested fee.

As revealed yesterday, Wiley, JME and others are also playing a benefit show for Haiti in London, at the Den And Centro venue on the same night.
