A benefit and fundraiser is being planned to help the owners and employees of popular Corktown music venue UFO Factory after it was condemned due to a construction accident on Wednesday.

As new development was underway next door to the UFO Factory, construction workers severely damaged the building, causing a massive crack in the side, severely compromising the building's basic foundation.

A GoFundMe page has already been set up to raise money, and on Monday, a benefit for employees is being held at El Club in southwest Detroit.

The benefit for UFO Factory employees is happening from 7 p.m to midnight and will offer free admission. They are asking you to donate what you can for the venue, and El Club will donate 100 percent of food sales and drink sales to UFO Factory.

At least a dozen Detroit DJs are expected at the benefit, most of whom regularly perform at UFO Factory.

Bartenders from UFO are also expected to be on hand, behind the bar at the benefit.
