Neon Indian at Governors Ball (more by Chris La Putt)
826NYC, the non-profit writing center for NYC students, is teaming up with Bowery to present 'The Prom You Were Promised: A Benefit for 826NYC' at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 13. The event is designed to recreate a prom night with formal attire and DJ sets by Yeasayer, BAIO (of Vampire Weekend), Neon Indian, and CANT (Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear) (they're all DJ sets). It will be hosted by Jason Sudeikis of SNL. Tickets are on sale now.
You can also catch CANT (the actual band, not a DJ set) for free at the free Spotify show with Blood Orange at Mercury Lounge on Sunday (8/28).
