Marnie Stern bowls tonight (before the free Woods show), plays in June w/ Anni Rossi who has 2 upcoming shows

Gumbowl

Marnie Stern will be one of the bowlers (but not one of the performers) at a Stereogum “Gumbowl” charity event tonight at Brooklyn Bowl. You can’t watch her bowl yet, but you can go to the concert afterwards (that she is not playing)….

“While the doors have to be closed during the tournament in order to film it all for charitable posterity — and be sure we’ll present you with the footage — we’re celebrating afterward by throwing open the gates for a FREE CONCERT, headlined by Woods, and featuring an opening set from the ‘Gum-beloved rising sextet Effi Briest, DJ magic from Ms. St. Vincent Annie Clark, and loitering by our celebrity bowlers, who may or may not still be wearing the sweet-ass bowling jerseys we’re throwing on them. We want you there (if you’re 21 or older (sorry, kids!)).” – Stereogum

They had an RSVP for the concert part, but now they just say “THERE WILL BE SOME “TICKETS” AT THE DOOR! COME EARLY IF YOU WANT IN. DOORS OPEN AT 9PM”. Brooklyn Bowl is a big place. The flyer is below.

Other charity bowlers include The Blow (who has a show coming up at Joe’s Pub), Nick Islands Thorburn Diamonds (who has 3 NYC shows coming up), Alan Neon Indian Palomo (who has multiple NYC shows coming), and Tim Les Savy Fav Harrington (who has a scheduled Brooklyn show too). The full list of bowlers is also below.

If you want to catch Marnie Stern play live, her next show will be at Glasslands on Friday, June 18th along with White Hinterland, Anni Rossi, Translations and True Womanhood. It’s not free, but you get a discount if you RSVP to that here.

Anni Rossi will also be playing Pianos the night before (6/17).

More info on the Gumbowl and flyers are below…

Well this oughta be fun. A few things we love: Charity, bowling, music, and comedy. What we are doing about it: Combining all of them for a very special event. Stereogum and Videogum are partnering with the folks behind the Microsoft KIN to present the inaugural ‘Gum Bowl, bringing together so many of our favorite musicians and comedians so that we can then break them up into warring teams for a charitable celebrity bowling tournament.

Starring: Musicians Marnie Stern, Nick Thorburn (Islands), Tim Harrington (Les Savy Fav), Alan Palomo (Neon Indian), Jemina Pearl, Himanshu Suri (Das Racist), Kip Berman (The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart), Sondre Lerche, Doveman, Elizabeth Harper (Class Actress), Khaela Maricich (The Blow), Dawn Landes, and comedians Jon Glaser, Michael Showalter, Patrick Borelli, Baron Vaughn, Gabe Liedman, Kumail Nanjiani, Larry Murphy, Max Silvestri, our very own Gabe Delahaye, and a great many more.
