{Bookeaters Benefit}


I just paid a small fortune to get a couple of really great seats to the Bookeaters Benefit concert in L.A. on August 26th. The show features words and music from: Aimee Mann, Jenny Lewis, Dave Eggers, Sarah Vowell, The Mountain Goats and will be hosted by Andy Richter. The shows proceeds go to benefit the 826 Writing Centers.

The benefit tour picks up other notables like Sufjan Stevens and Jon Stewart in New York, and Ben Gibbard (Death Cab) and Ira Glass (This American Life) in Chicago. The tour also makes a stop in Seattle, San Fransisco, and Michigan. See the official site for more details.

Here's a few old tunes I hope to hear:

The Mountain Goats - "No Children"

Aimee Mann - "How Am I Different"

Rilo Kiley - "A Man, Me, Then Jim"
