The bill is beyond diverse, featuring The Roots, Nada Surf, Glen Hansard, DeVotchka, J Mascis and Bettye Lavette just to name a few of the twenty+ that are on board. "100% of the net proceeds from this event" will benefit charities like Fixing Instruments for Kids in Schools, Church Street School for Music & Art, The Pinwheel Project, Music Unites, The American Symphony Orchestra and Young Audiences New York, so pick up your tickets with a clear conscious!

Lincoln Center's acclaimed series American Songbook returns in January for its thirteenth season celebrating the diversity of American popular song. For 16 nights of pop, folk, cabaret, country, rock, and show tunes, the series will explore the best of the golden age of musical standards through to today's most dynamic songwriting. The 2011 season - January 12 through February 20 - will bring to the stage some of today's most gifted interpreters of song, starting with the luminous legend Barbara Cook, the multi-faceted Joan Osborne, as well as the newest toast of Broadway, Kate Baldwin. It will feature opportunities to hear the acclaimed opera starCarolina Chocolate Drops also play one of the shows. Full schedule and more info at Lincoln Center's site.
Pfizer is a proud sponsor of Lincoln Center's American Songbook 2011.
Stephanie Blythe and stage and film actress Anika Noni Rose who make their solo pop concert debuts, and the enduring influence of Latin music in the American Songbook canon will be represented by the modern bossa nova of Bebel Gilberto and the Cuban rhythms of Broadway star Raul Esparza. Arguably the greatest songwriting team in American Songbook history are the brothers George and Ira Gershwin, and they will be the subject of a Rob Fisher tribute with an array of dazzling voices.
Bebel Gilberto is playing Hiro Ballroom on November 25th. Tickets are still on sale.
Hot Chip, Magnetic Fields, and other tickets are on sale now too.
Tickets are still on sale for tonight and tomorrow's Bob Dylan shows.
As far as I can tell, Bebel Gilbeto has just four shows coming up, and all of them are in NYC, which makes sense since the Brazilian singer-songwriter was born and lives here.
Tickets are still available for both Red Hot + Rio 2 shows happening at the Brooklyn Academy of Music tonight/Thursday and Friday. As previously noted, CéU, Curumin, José González, Otto, João Parahyba (from Trio Mocoto), and Bebel Gilberto are the artists playing those shows.
An all-star benefit tribute to the music and culture of Brazil, Red Hot + Rio 2 salutes Samba Soul, the post-tropicália movement of the 70s that merged elements of North American soul music with Brazilian rhythms. Mixing samba with R&B, soul with baião, pioneering artists like Jorge Ben Jor and Tim Maia signaled a cultural awakening that changed the direction of Brazilian music forever. The concerts at BAM bring together the newest generation of Brazilian and international artists who represent the legacy of this influential musical style.Bebels' third upcoming show is in a much more intimate setting, but unfortunately/not surprisingly, the $40 tickets to her December 9th show at Joe's Pub are all sold out. Tickets are still on sale though for her recently announced, fourth upcoming NYC show, at Town Hall, but that's not until June. All dates, in a list format, below...
NY Mag's next 'indie rock' event takes place this Saturday with Islands. The one after that will take place on September 28th and be called "Campfire by the Canal"...
Unlike all those years you spent at Boy Scout camp, no group push-ups, map making or log carving will be required for you to feel the love at this special campfire celebration at The Yard in Brooklyn. All you'll be asked to do is sit back and enjoy a full set by José González. We're also giving you hilarious tales of summers gone by performed by members of the Upright Citizens Brigade. Campfires never looked this good.And that's not it for Jose and NYC in 2008. He'll be back again to perform two more times in December, again in Brooklyn, but this time at BAM:
