The First Of Silent Barn's Barnraisers Is Tonight, And "Special Guests" Are Involved
The temporarily-on-hiatus venue Silent Barn hasjust passed the $30,000 mark
in their Kickstarter campaign torebuild the Ridgewood venue
after it was burglarized and ransacked earlier this month. Those people looking to donate funds while away from their computers can now engage in some philanthropy as well: Tonight the bandBomb The Music Industry
(that's them covering "El Scorcho" at Silent Barn above) has decided to pitch in for the cause, turning the record-release show for their new albumVacation
, which is scheduled for tonight at 285 Kent, into a benefit for the venue.
You can hear all of Vacation at the Quote-Unquote Records sitethe label is donation-based, and asking for $5 should you download the record and enjoy it. (Track 8 is a kicky little powerpop number that owes a huge debt to Elvis Costello.) Perhaps tonight they'll cover "Hey Jealousy" again?Bomb the Music Industry, Cheap Girls & Mikey Erg cover Gin Blossoms' "Hey Jealousy" @ Europa
The show's at 285 Kent at 8 p.m., and there's talk of surprise guests taking the stage early, so do try to not be tardy.
