Could there be anything more Williamsburg than a concert presented by David Lynch featuring Sky Ferreira? For now, let’s say this is as Brooklyn as it gets and appreciate the concert’s purpose. Besides being a surrealist cult-film director responsible for classics like Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, and the TV show Twin Peaks, Lynch is a major advocate of Transcendental Meditation and has established the David Lynch Foundation to fund the teaching of the practice in at-risk schools and various support programs for the underprivileged, disabled, and the terminally ill. For his NYC benefit show, Lynch is featuring the frequently-
discussed, oft-controversial, “It Girl” of pop music fresh off her gig as opener for the even more frequently discussed and controversial “It Girl” Miley Cyrus.
