On Saturday, January 4,, which would’ve been David Berman‘s 53rd birthday, Union Pool is hosting DCBday, a tribute to the man and his music, featuring members of Silver Jews and Purple Mountains, and lots of special guests. The show sold out quickly and now Union Pool have added a second Berman tribute earlier in the day. It’s a matinee, with doors at 2 PM, and tickets are on sale now with proceeds going to Musicares and the NYC chapter of The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Union Pool has also announced more of the DCBday performers, including The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn (late show only), Ken Griffin (August Wells), and Cassandra Jenkins (who sang on the Purple Mountains album). As mentioned, already on board are Silver Jews players Steve West (who is also in Pavement) and Matt Hunter (also of New Radiant Storm King), and Purple Mountains player Kyle Forester (also of Woods), and Titus Andronicus’ Patrick Stickles. Steve Keene is making artwork that will hang at Union Pool for the shows (that’s one of his paintings above.)

More special guests are still TBA and lineups will vary a little between the two shows. Lineup for DCBday at Union Pool is listed below.
