Teddy Thompson & Friends Christmas Show *A benefit concert for* @ Highline Ballroom, NYC

December 19,2007 - Featuring performances by Teddy Thompson, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Kamila Thompson, Jenni Muldaur, Sonya Kitchell, Neal Casal, Tift Merritt, Christina Courtin & surprise guests

$35 tickets go on sale Monday November 12th @ noon. Don't expect a full performance by Rufus with that many people on the bill, but Wainwright family holidy events are always fun (not to mention all the other talented artists you'll get to hear).

For a full Rufus show in the NYC-area, check Rufus out when he headlines the State Theater in New Brunswick, NJ on January 12th.

And good news for all of us who never got a chance to see Rufus perform Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall...

The first night of the two-night stint at NYC ’s Carnegie Hall will now be released as the CD Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall on December 4th. The same performance at the London Palladium (February 25, 2007) makes up the DVD Rufus! Rufus! Rufus! Does Judy! Judy! Judy! Live at the London Palladium (out also on December 4th). In addition to the New York City and London shows, Wainwright also performed Garland’s Carnagie Hall concert at the Olympia in Paris, and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.[mog]
