John Grant, Frankie Cosmos, Lee Ranaldo, Algiers, Vagabon, and more are performing at a benefit concert at Murmrr Theater on December 1. Titled “Love Speech,” it’s an “evening of unity and love” that’s a direct reaction to the anti-semitic graffiti found at Murmrr (which is located inside of Union Temple in Brooklyn) before an Ilana Glazer event earlier this month.

Also performing are Xenia Rubinos, Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Meredith Graves, and The Daily Show’s Jaboukie Young-White, plus DJ sets form Ian Williams (Battles), George Clarke (Deafheaven), and Cornelia Murr. Additionally there will be a text silent auction featuring signed instruments and items from David Lynch, Jeff Tweedy, Courtney Barnett, Nie Rodgers, The Pixies, John Carpenter, and Ryuichi Sakamoto, plus VIP passes to Pitchfork Fest 2019, and more.

Tickets for “Love Speech” are on sale now and proceeds from the evening will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center, who monitor hate speech and fight for civil rights across America, and help pay for the temple’s much-needed additional security. Check out the poster for the show below.
