Brooklyn-based not-for-profit Gender is Over! (If You Want It) is celebrating its first anniversary with a benefit show for the Immigrant Defense Project at Brooklyn DIY spot Silent Barn on February 18. David Dondero of Sunbrain and Lauren Denitzio of Worriers are playing the show, along with a special guest billed as "Clarice Starling." We're not sure who the special guest is, but maybe it's worth noting that this show happens one day before a certain major Gender Is Over supporter plays NYC. Tickets are on sale now.

Horse Feathers & friend
Horse Feathers, out promoting Cynic's New Year which you can stream at Kill Rock Stars' Bandcamp, is on a tour that hits Knitting Factory in Brooklyn tonight (11/14) with Frank Fairfield (who has toured with Fleet Foxes and Cass McCombs) and David Dondero (who returned to Ghostmeat Records in 2011 after three albums on Conor Oberst's Team Love label). It's a solid bill of folky male singer-songwriters.
David Dondero also plays Living Room on Thursday.
All tour dates are listed below...

"Gene Ween closed the night with a set that boasted numerous Ween songs as well as a cover of Fiddler on the Roof's "If I Were a Rich Man" that featured the house group's string section. In addition to the show's house band, Ween's set featured accompaniment from longtime Ween bassist Dave Dreiwitz." [jambands.com]First of all, sorry for the delay in this post - I was originally waiting for some video (coming soon!), and then I just fell behind. Second of all, the first-ever edition of Noncerts back on February 20th was a magical night of music at Cameo in Brooklyn with special sets by Gene Ween, Hamilton Leithauser, David Dondero, and Dave Godowsky, not to mention the 10-piece rotating house band full of acclaimed musicians who have played with everyone from Jay-Z to Bon Iver to Yo-Yo Ma. Plus, all proceeds form the show are being given to music funding at public schools in Brooklyn.
Stay tuned for video and audio, and for the lineup of the next Noncert (date TBA), but for now check out the full setlist and more pictures from the first one, below...
"Noncerts is a charity-based concert series in Brooklyn, NY.

It will be a special night, with all the money going to charity, and tickets are on sale now.

The spazzy, smiley, mosh-friendly Matt & Kim touring with the equally mosh pit-inducing Against Me! seems to make sense. Team Love singer-songwriter David Dondero on that bill doesn't make as much sense, but hey, why not....
