The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be playing an intimate show at Brooklyn's Union Pool, in an effort to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief. Tickets for the show, which was just announced, go on sale tomorrow (November 27th) at noon right here, and will cost between $75 and $100.
The benefit show, which is happening in collaboration with Union Pool, Jameson Irish Whiskey, and From Brooklyn, With Love, will take place on December 8th.
Union Pool’s intimate jewel-box theatre located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn will be the setting for this very limited capacity, special performance. All proceeds from the benefit will go directly to Waves For Water, an international surf-based non-profit organization, whose positive, “no-nonsense” approach has provided clean water to victims of natural disasters around the globe. This past month marks the beginning of their Hurricane Sandy Relief Initiative, the first North America-focused relief effort from the charity. The focus of the Initiative goes beyond clean water and centers around first response, rubble removal and rebuilding efforts all across the affected New York, New Jersey and North Carolina shorelines.
Opening up the night will be Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band, featuring Tunde Adebimpe of TV on The Radio and drummer Ryan Sawyer.
