Port O'Brien to Tour, Release EP for Doctors Without Borders and Haiti Relief

As we stated last week, we would gladly support any way in which you chose to use your time or money to help the people of Haiti. Having said that, it's hard to argue with spending a few bucks on good music and helping a noble Haiti-related cause at the same time. Port O'Brien is releasing a new EP today entitled The Pan American Sessions. The EP includes four alternate versions of songs from their recent album, threadbare, that were recorded with the Papercuts' Jason Quever in his Pan American Studios in San Francisco. The EP is available for $4 at the band's website and all proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders and their relief efforts in Haiti. The band is also set to begin a tour with Portugal The Man in February. Tracklist and dates are after the jump.
