As those keeping count already know, Dirty Projectors played four NYC shows in November with Tune-Yards. Two were at Bowery Ballroom. Two were at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The final one featured two very special guests, one of which was The Roots, who, members of the Dirty Projectors then played with again on Fallon the night before Thanksgiving.
And it ends up that will be only one of two extra special shows the Brooklyn band plays in NYC that month. The other, though it will only be a short set, will happen exactly a week later...
Tibet House US will hold its 20th Annual Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall on Friday, February 26th. Philip Glass, the concert's Artistic Director, has once again brought together an amazing, original line-up of contemporary artists.
For the past twenty years at Carnegie Hall, the annual concert has assembled some of the biggest names in music and offers audiences a mix of unprecedented musical collaborations and solo offerings. And 2010 will be no exception!
Concert tickets are $35 to $85 and can be purchased by calling Carnegie Charge at 212.247.7800 or in person at the Carnegie Hall Box Office (57th Street and Seventh Avenue).
They haven't actually announced any of the lineup yet (besides Philip Glass), but Dirty Projectors are playing it. Vampire Weekend participated in the 2009 show.
