On Thursday, May 6, Jeff Mangum, The Clean, Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, Kyp Malone (of TV on the Radio), Claudia Gonson (of The Magnetic Fields), Sharon Van Etten, John Mulaney, Robert Scott, David Kilgour & Dimmer will unite in an evening of music at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City to benefit New Zealand musician Chris Knox, who suffered a series of life-altering strokes last year.
Hosted by Le Poisson Rouge, Wordless Music and WFMU, this show comes on the heels of the recent release of Stroke, a double album compilation of artists covering Knox songs with the proceeds going to benefit him and his family. All money raised for this event, save for circa $2,500 base costs to cover direct club expenses, is going straight to the Knox family.
This event is now sold out! Thank you very much!
Stroke is available now as a limited-edition 2-CD set and digital download in the Merge store.
