The Kitchen Spring Gala Benefit

Honoring
David Byrne

Wednesday, May 26, 2010
Capitale 130 Bowery at Grand Street, New York City

6:00 pm COCKTAILS AND HORS D'OEUVRES
7:30 pm DINNER AND PERFORMANCES
by Dirty Projectors, Doveman, Nico Muhly, and St. Vincent

9:30 to Midnight AFTER-PARTY with open bar, desserts, and dancing with DJ Scott Campbell & Leo Fitzpatrick and a live music performance by Chief
Hosted by The Smile and The Journal

Wednesday night's $500-a-ticket Gala event (the afterparty was cheaper) at Capitale didn't include any surprises (no on-stage collaborations or surprise guests), but it did include performances by Dirty Projectors, Doveman, Nico Muhly, and St. Vincent as advertised, and raise a lot of money for non-profit venue The Kitchen (whose upcoming events include two talent shows curated by Robert Melee).

The honoree, David Byrne, rode his bike to and from the party. More pictures from the event (though none of Chief who play two more NYC shows in June), below...

How can you trust a man who wears suspenders? The man can't even trust his own pants...

He's like the opposite of Johnny Cash: The Man in White.

Riding a bike is not a novelty. It's a practicality. Especially in this traffic-clogged town.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.

you dave haters can go fuck yourselves. bonnaroo 2010 was 4 of the best days of my life. the DMB and JayZ headliners at the main stage were two of the best shows I've ever seen, musically and production speaking. 2011 'roo is going to be amazing. Phish headlining?

they also played at a place called Tramps in april '99 losers. with qotsa. where were you? you guys sound pretty angry? go listen to something hip. whatever the fuck you think that is. why does james iha need to be in the band for them to be good? that makes no sense. so the band changed lineups. oh well.
