The Facebook guy apparently knows how to put on a good show.

Peter Kerre, the Harlem-based man who set up a virtual one-stop shop for resources following the north Minneapolis tornado, is hosting a benefit concert July 19 at First Avenue.

Kerre is known to hip-hop fans as promoter and turntablist DJ Xpect. His website says he used to DJ for the Minneapolis radio station KMOJ.

Rapper KRS-One is headlining the concert, which Kerre promises will be the first of many shows to raise money for relief efforts on the north side. Other acts include Detroit-based Slum Village and Toki Wright.

Tickets went on sale at noon today.
