“Dark Was The Night” Comes To Life.

Really, the point of this post is this song:
Yeasayer – “Tightrope”

I slid by this album a few weeks ago but hot damn, it’s fucking good. It was put together by Red Hot, an organization based out of NY that arranges albums to raise money for AIDS charities. So anyway, here’s the projected line up from Dark Was The Night‘s site:

Sunday May 3 at Radio City Music Hall featuring several of the artists that contributed to the compilation including Dave Sitek, Dirty Projectors, Feist, My Brightest Diamond, The National, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings plus more to be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, March 13 at 11am via Ticketmaster. Dark Was The Night – Live begins at 8pm (doors will open at 7).

Since then we’ve heard David Byrne and Grizzly Bear will be joining in the ruckus, according to Feist. Who may or may not be lying. But that’d be mean. And I don’t picture her as a liar, her voice is too delicate for harsh words. Although I suppose that’s how they get ya… (seriously I don’t know who’s confirmed but it will be a great show regardless).
