José González’s bare-bones cover of the Knife’s “Heartbeats” was used in a 2005 ad for Sony Bravia televisions in the U.K., further bolstering his hit debut album, Veneer. But despite that popular success—and securing his place in all-around good-dudeness—the Swedish-Argentinian crooner has partnered with the environmental nonprofit Reverb to make his current tour green. The sustainable-energy advocates, who have also “greened” tours for Stars and Andrew Bird, will help González calculate and cancel out the tour’s “CO2 footprint,” and supply his crew with reusable water bottles and biodegradable catering products. González played the Plug Awards on Thursday (his 2007 sophomore album, In Our Nature, was up for two awards, but won neither). But you can get a final José fix and the Highline Ballroom tonight for two shows [8pm with Mia Doi Todd (tix) and 10:30 pm tix with no opener] or tomorrow (Wed., March 12, 7:30 p.m.) at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. Ticket information for the Masonic Temple here. With Mia Doi Todd.
