The local D.C.-based quintet Siné Qua Non will perform live this Thursday at the Lights, Camera, (Collective) Action! Fundraiser at Room & Board on 14th Street.

The fundraiser will celebrate accomplishments made this year in preventing public sexual harassment and assault in the local community. The event will be hosted by Collective Action for Safe Spaces- a grassroots organization founded in 2009 to encourage the DC Metro area to prevent harassment and assault, according to the organization’s website.

Siné Qua Non, which means “an essential element or condition” in French, is an American jazz and Spanish classical guitar group that was named Jazz Artist of the Year in 2012 by Washington City Paper. They released their first CD, “Simple Pleasures,” in January of this year, according to the group’s blog.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $25. The event will feature mixes by DJ vANNIEty Kill and dancing, food and drinks, masseuses giving mini massages and a photobooth.
