Moby has always been a vocal supporter of animals (even naming his fourth album “Animal Rights”). Lately, he’s also become an adhoc spokesperson for Los Angeles, extolling what many have known for years about the city’s virtues as a destination for artists in a recent editorial. On March 7, he will combine both these passions in a guest appearance during Pete Tong’s new-L.A. residency at Sound Nightclub as part of the unofficial welcome wagon for former Londoner Tong.
"The last time I played with Pete Tong was a few years ago in London,” Moby tells Billboard. “I’m really excited to play with him 6,000 miles away in L.A. at this cool, intimate club.”
In a somewhat unusual move, a portion of the proceeds will go to the No Kill Los Angeles animal shelter and Moby says he will also donate his fee for the evening to NKLA.
