Usually, Lower East Side club The Slipper Room hosts Seth Herzog's weekly SWEET comedy show on Tuesdays, but tonight (8/22) is a comedy and music benefit for victims of the attack in Charlottesville, VA on August 12. AC Newman of New Pornographers will perform, as will comedians Todd Barry, Andy Blitz, Starlee Kine, Jeffrey Joseph, and Bobby Tisdale. Doors are at 8 PM and the show is at 9 PM. It's $10 at the door and proceeds go to "help people receiving medical treatment for injuries sustained in the Charlottesville terror attack."

AC Newman just wrapped up a tour with The New Pornographers (who will be back on the road starting in September).
