The Wrens at Maxwell's in 2009 (more by Anna Scialli)
Wrens

A number of local indie musicians will be teaming up to play a benefit for Windsor Terrace's PS154 at Brooklyn's Bell House on May 30. The lineup features Bambi Kino -- aka the Beatles cover band made up of Doug Gillard (ex-Guided By Voices), Mark Rozzo (Maplewood), Ira Elliot (Nada Surf), and Erik Paparazzi (Cat Power) who dedicate their shows to the band's early days in Hamburg, Germany -- Charles Bissell & Kevin Whelan of indie veterans The Wrens (who have been promising a new album for a loooong time), and an original lineup reunion by Palomar. Also on the bill is The Big Bright (mems of Ollabelle) and White Collar Crime. Tickets for the benefit show are on sale now.

Speaking of Windsor Terrace schools, Bishop Ford, home to some big music video shoots, is closing (and probably no benefit can save them at this point).

Speaking of Beatles cover bands, The Fab Faux are presenting "John Lennon vs. Paul McCartney - The World Heavyweight Songwriting Championship!" in NYC on October 18 at Beacon Theatre with Hogshead Horns and The Creme Tangerine Strings. Tickets for that show are currently on AmEx and Chase presales, and go on sale to the general public on Friday (4/18) at 9 AM. The Fab Faux also play Port Chester, NY's Capitol Theatre on June 28 (tickets).

Let me rewrite this annoyingly misleading headline for you:

"Members of Nada Surf, Guided by Voices, The Wrens plus Palomar & more playing PS154 benefit; The Fab Faux playing shows too"

...so you don't disappoint literally everyone.

I pretty much knew this was bullshit when I saw "GBV" and "school benefit" in the same sentence, but I still clicked. Bravo pricks.
