Levon Helm at Summerstage, July 2011 (more by Chris La Putt)
The great Levon Helm will be paid tribute on 11/19 at Hill Country (30 w26th St, Manhattan), when Catherine Popper (of Levon Helm/Jack White/Ryan Adams/Grace Potter's bands) will assemble Puss 'n Boots (which probably means Norah Jones) to lead a benefit at the venue. Levon's charity 'Keep It Going!' will be the receipient of the proceeds, a charity designed to keep Midnight Ramble, the studio and associated properties up and running. Joining Popper will be performances from Suzanna Choffel, Fredro Perry, The Cheating Hearts, and Bug & Bru (of The Defibulators). $20 gets you in.
This isn't the first time that a member of Grace Potter's band has been involved in a benefit; the frontwoman herself performed at a Levon Helm tribute show in early October.
Meanwhile check out pictures from the Austin show.

Grace Potter & the Nocturnals played a secret show at Rockwood Music Hall's new Stage 2 last night (4/22). The gig came between the appearance they made in Times Square for Earth Day that morning, and the one they're playing for Earth Day at Grand Central today.
"Stage 2" has been open less than a month. Larger than Stage 1, the 150+ capacity room had tables set up but there was plenty of room for anyone that showed up. It got packed by the end of their performance though. Playing from 8:30 until almost 10, their set was a mix of old and brand new songs. Grace was talkative and thanked the venue for setting up the show so last minute. Nocturnals bassist Catherine Popper has played Rockwood (Stage 1) many times by herself (and with others). Pictures and videos from the show continue below.
Also below, a set of never-before-published pics from a show Grace Potter headlined at the much larger Webster Hall in 2008. It's the same venue she'll headline on June 12th of this year. Tickets go on sale at noon. Pictures below...

"Wheeler has been hired to write the "Shrek" spinoff "Puss in Boots" for DreamWorks Animation, a stand-alone feature foray for the feline assassin/swordsman voiced by Antonio Banderas in the two most recent "Shrek" films. The "Shrek" franchise has ballooned into a multibillion-dollar property, with three feature films grossing more than $2 billion worldwide in theaters, tens of millions of DVDs sold and merchandising in every toy store. A fourth feature film, "Shrek Goes Fourth," is due in theaters May 21, 2010." [The Hollywood Reporter]"Puss in Boots" the movie actually has nothing to do with Puss n Boots the band who played Rockwood Music Hall on Saturday night (5/9). More pictures from that show below...
