‘@Joslynm congrats on your pop culture trivia expertise!’ – Pat Kiernan

“Without being too cheesy, I have to say there was a really beautiful spirit at last night’s concert. The venue was sold out and aside from the silent auction, Bell House raised $35,000.00 for Save the Children and Partners in Health. I missed the first hour or so because I had to stop by my place, but got there in time to see Jimmy Fallon do a Neil Young impression. Then Freelance Whales played. You all should check them out. They’re getting crazy attention right now and they are based out of Queens. Now that’s special! Anyway, it was good times all around. Cat Power and Pavement records and CDs were given away for trivia knowledge, Ted Leo who also has shows in town, was adorable and even though Cold War Kids pulled out of the show, the Walkmen did an amazing job closing the show.” [Petunia Eats]

The long show ran from 7pm-2am with, as pointed out, the Walkmen closing out the night. Actress Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) and her band The Leisure Class were a surprise guest that Ryan Muir said were “blowing me away. Now they are covering St Vincent. ‘Marry Me'”. (St. Vincent herself played covers at the Haiti benefit that happened at Music Hall on Saturday). NY1’s Pat Kiernan (possibly who I wanted to see the most on the bill) hosted trivia. Eugene Mirman introduced him as the guy you see every morning on TV if you don’t have Fios.

All artists, including Here We Go Magic, played short sets. If you want to see more of them (HWGM), they play as a headliner at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday.
