Feist reads Harry Potter

Tickets go on sale Friday for Revenge of REVENGE OF THE BOOK EATERS: a benefit for 826NYC

THE COUNTRY’S MOST CELEBRATED SONGWRITERS, WRITERS, AND COMEDIANS COME TOGETHER FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT OF LITERATURE-MEETS-MUSIC TO RAISE MONEY FOR 826NYC, A CHILDREN’S WRITING CENTER IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK. IN WHICH:

A.C. NEWMAN (New Pornographers) sings alone. GRIZZLY BEAR is a band. FEIST reads from a book. JIM JAMES (My Morning Jacket) croons. SARAH VOWELL speaks. DEMETRI MARTIN hosts.

The show is is Sunday August 26th @ The Beacon Theatre in NYC, and hopefully Feist (who is playing McCarren Pool three days later) does more than just READ - maybe even sing with her friends in Grizzly Bear. More info @ BookEaters.org.

I wasn't disappointed by Sufjan last year. He did have a nervous sort of energy, but I thought it was charming.His story was amazing and it was great to see him with such a small backing band too.

love the feist + harry potter mash-up you made. shall we take bets on what book she's going to read aloud?

Got Row A as well. I hope Demetri is up to the hosting task.

Is it just me or does Feist/her music seem to be showing up everywhere lately?
