Tonight! Here We Go Magic, Ted Leo, The Walkmen, A.C. Newman, The Roots, and Breakfast in Fur
Pair the profound insights of comedian Eugene "God Is a 12-Year-Old Boy with Asperger's" Mirman with the transcendental folk of Here We Go Magic (that's them above), and you've got yourself a Haiti benefit concert at the Bell House. Adding to the mix are acoustic sets by the indie all-star cast of Ted Leo, the Walkmen, Sondre Lerche, and A.C. Newman. Jimmy Fallon will also be there.
Parting ways with Fallon for the night, the Roots are headlining the Music Hall of Williamsburg Haiti benefit. In contrast to the Bell House, this show is opting for a funk 'n' soul 'n' jazz lineup, featuring Eric Krasno & Chapter 2 with John Scofield and special guest Matisyahu. For a more subdued night of Haiti charity, try the Music Vs. Hunger benefit at Bruar Falls. Bring canned goods for the food drive and settle down for some folk with the somber Puerto Rican songbirds El Medio and the all-encompassing Breakfast in Fur, who aptly describe their woozy acoustics as "amniotic fluid"-sounding.
