Versus headlining Philippines benefit at Shea Stadium
Versus at Chickfactor 20 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
The Philippines are still recovering from devastating Typhoon Haiyan (aka Yolanda) which hit the country back in November. There have been a few benefits here in NYC -- most notably David Byrne's staging of Here Lies Love at Terminal 5 -- but this Saturday (1/11) there's one at Shea Stadium featuring bands with ties to the Philippines. Headliners are indie rock vets Versus (who haven't had a NYC show in a good while), and also features pow wow!, Crazy Pills, Quiet Loudly, The Planes, and Let's Be Loveless. Tickets are $10 at the door and all proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Typhoon Relief Effort.
