David Byrne and Sonic Youth Collaborate

Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore, Citizen Cope, and Pamela Laws (Seven Day Diary) will perform at a June 9 literacy fundraiser in New York. The Bowery Ballroom show will benefit the Brooklyn-based Carter G. Woodson Cultural Literacy Program, which helps at risk students in the New York borough’s Brownsville and Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhoods.

Sponsored by the independent publishers alliance BigSmallPressMall, the event will also feature fiction readings by Jonathan Franzen, Mary Gaitskill, and Colson Whitehead. Tickets are $20 in advance and available through TicketWeb or $25 at the venue on the day of the show.
