Surely you’ve heard about Radiohead’s Haiti benefit show in LA or Fiona Apple’s “Love and Haiti, Too” at Largo by now, but here’s a new gig for people near NYC, as well as a couple more interesting Largo charity events.
BrooklynVegan and Bowery Presents have put together quite the comedy/music show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (formerly Northsix) on 6th St. in Brooklyn. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross and an orphanage in Haiti personally chosen by Zach Galifianakis, who is performing alongside the Daily Show’s Wyatt Cynac, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, Spoon frontman Britt Daniel, St. Vincent, Janeane Garofalo, and “possibly more TBA.” For ticket info and more, go thataway.
We mentioned Fiona Apple, Jon Brion, and Gillian Welch’s benefit at Largo earlier today, but we missed two more important shows being held at the LA club next week. LAist reports that Largo will host “Love and Haiti: A Comedy Benefit” on Monday (Jan. 25) and “Song Circle for Haiti: Jenny Lewis & Friends” on Tuesday (Jan. 26).
The former event features comedians Sarah Silverman, possibly Ben Stiller, and Kanye West’s buddy Aziz Ansari. Performing at the latter benefit gig will be Jenny Lewis of course, Azure Ray (Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink), Johnathan Rice, Morgan Nagler, Becky Stark, Jason Boesel (Rilo Kiley, Bright Eyes), and more “special guests.” For ticket info and more, go thataway.
