Björk: high priestess of philanthropy? Believe it, sugar. In an incredible display of both generosity and randomness, the eccentric, experimental pop dryad will grace the cozy Housing Works Used Bookstore Café in Soho for a rare charity concert. And, as befits the occasion, she’ll have exclusive material: a new five-voice suite, penned by Dirty Projectors singer David Longstreth and shared with the band. Proceeds will benefit the wonderful Housing Works nonprofit and all the services it provides to homeless New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.
